Sheltair proudly announces that it has agreed to an official partnership with SUN ‘n FUN, supporting the Aerospace Center for Excellence (ACE) while becoming the official fuel provider for the world-famous airshow at Lakeland Linder International Airport (KLAL) from April 13 - 18.

In addition to an in-kind contribution, Sheltair will donate $0.10 per gallon on all uplifts during the event to ACE's Project Skylab, a STEM learning center designed to provide hands-on activities for the next generation of aviation professionals. Since ACE's opening in 2014, SUN ‘n FUN’s proceeds have supported the non-profit aerospace organization whose mission is to engage, educate, and accelerate the aerospace industry's professionals of tomorrow.

"Sheltair has provided excellent service to our SUN ‘n FUN guests for years," said John "Lites" Leenhouts, president and CEO of SUN ‘n FUN / Aerospace Center for Excellence. "Having them engage in such a fantastic effort to help support our Aerospace Center for Excellence as an official partner is very exciting. We are very grateful and look forward to expanding our partnership in the coming months!"

Andy Castro, Sheltair's general manager at KLAL, commented, "We are committed to supporting the growth and success of both ACE and SUN ‘n FUN. Sheltair always looks forward to serving the airshow, but furthermore, we are proud to align with their mission and inspired to support the next generation of aviators."

As an Avfuel-branded FBO, pilots flying to Sheltair Lakeland for SUN ‘n FUN will receive triple AVTRIP Points for a more rewarding experience. Sheltair will also offer even more streamlined services at this year's event, including invoicing right at the refueling truck for simplified operations that, in turn, will allow for more time enjoying SUN ‘n FUN.

"Our flight operations during SUN ‘n FUN require very detailed planning and coordination, and Sheltair has always been on time and accurate with every delivery," remarked Greg Gibson, SUN ‘n FUN’s Chief Marketing Officer and Airshow Director. "Our performers and fly-in guests alike continually compliment their experience and friendly service. We couldn't ask for a better partner!"

Sheltair stands ready to serve upwards of 60,000 aircraft movements in a six-day span with a full array of services and benefits, including U.S. Customs, award-winning customer service and ground support, hangar space and tie-downs, on-site Hertz rental cars, catering, shuttle services, crew cars, complimentary refreshments and snacks, a flight planning/weather room, and a pilot's lounge.
