As part of the annual St. Louis Fourth of July festivities, Jet Aviation St. Louis welcomed approximately 1,500 fans with special needs for an exclusive performance on Sunday, July 3.
Air shows are a highlight of the annual three-day, city-wide celebration, and the performance aircraft are marshaled from the Jet Aviation St. Louis operation. For the special July 3 event, fans with special needs were invited to Jet Aviation’s campus to witness the aircraft depart for a performance over the St. Louis riverfront. Upon their return, the stunt and acrobatic aircraft provided a private show for the audience at the airport.
“In cooperation with the airport, we provided shelter and refreshments,” said Rodger Renaud, president ad interim, Jet Aviation St. Louis. “More importantly, we provided access to a group of people who normally would encounter challenges when trying to attend this type of event. We’re delighted to share our enthusiasm for aviation with this special audience.”
