SUN ‘n FUN Home Edition is a developing project that will offer a virtual experience of the show.
Due to COVID-19 and CDC safety regulations, the 2020 SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo has been canceled.
“We didn’t sit back and give up,” said John “Lites” Leenhouts, president and CEO of the Aerospace Center for Excellence. “We got to work on alternative ways to bring the excitement and camaraderie that our SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo is known for to people around the world. Our partners, sponsors, exhibitors, and the whole airshow community are working alongside us, which is why SUN ‘n FUN Home Edition 2020 will be a great experience. Our theme for this year was Experience Flight in 2020, and little did we know that it would be a virtual experience!”
Be sure to block your calendar for Saturday, May 30th, as SUN ‘n FUN Home Edition will present a four-hour, never-before-seen SUN ‘n FUN Home Edition Live Online Benefit Broadcast! SUN ‘n FUN will have all your favorite performers, interviews, and airshow action in a new and exciting format. Details of this unique event will be available soon.
Content for this new virtual experience has begun starting to roll out and is available on its website, www.flysnf.org, and social channels including Facebook and Instagram. Michael Goulian is the first scheduled guest to take part in a live online interview as part of Performer Profiles. Scheduled for May 1st at 6:00 pm EST, Michael will share how he became one of North America’s most decorated aerobatic pilots and recognized aviation professional.
Chat Live with your favorite Airshow Performers, including Michael Goulian of Goulian Aerosports, Aeroshell Team, and Paul and Caroline Dougherty of Dougherty Airshows. Hosted by Steph Stricklen, Performer Profiles’ guests will share personal insights like how they got into their craft, what it takes to stay at the top of their game as daring aerial artists, and other behind-the-scenes stories. The audience will be able to participate, too! Check the schedule for dates and times of all the guests.
