Destination: Three and a Half ShowsWritten by Jennifer Dellenbusch
This spring was a whirlwind of activity as the intrepid PFA staff attended aviation shows as far-flung as Germany and Alaska. Shows are a great way for us to keep in touch with friends and colleagues. We also gain new members—and keep up with what’s new in the industry—by attending aviation shows. Just when you think everything that could be dreamt up has already been thought of, someone comes along with an innovation or a tweak that makes flying and owning a Piper safer, easier, more affordable, or in the case of some gizmos, just cooler. Here are some photos and our impressions from the spring aviation shows.
Sun ‘n Fun International Fly-in & Expo
March 27 – April 1, 2012
The show season always kicks off for us with the Sun ‘n Fun in Lakeland, Fla. With its laid-back atmosphere and pretty grounds, this is one of my favorite shows. Thankfully this year’s show had near perfect weather. We had a good time reconnecting with old friends and making new connections.
We also had the pleasure of sharing cake with the staff at Piper Aircraft as they kicked off their 75th anniversary celebration at the show.
