LAKELAND, Florida — For the first time ever for Aerospace Discovery Weekend (formerly Wings ‘n Things) on the SUN ‘n FUN Convention Campus, Jerry ‘Jive’ Kerby, a fighter pilot at the controls of his RV-8A known as Wild Blue with a maximum speed of over 200 mph, will fly as part of the activities Oct. 24-26.
Event activities have been enhanced with a MOSI traveling show, Rock Wall, Laser Tag and Geocaching. Students (ages 8-17) can register for their first flight at no additional cost above camping or daily registration, SUN ‘n FUN officials noted.
Previously known only as a scouting weekend, where badge components can be earned, the event now offers diverse aviation activities to groups of students. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education is at the forefront of activities at the Aerospace Center for Excellence on the SUN ‘n FUN Convention Campus.
