Win An All Expenses Paid Trip To Sun ‘n Fun 2017

The Stallions P-51 Crazy Horse in flight - Win An All Expenses Paid Trip To Sun 'n Fun 2017

Raffle Promises A Complete Aviation Vacation to Sun ‘n Fun 2017

A lucky aviator or aviation enthusiast stands a chance of winning an exceptional prize package following a partnership between Stallion 51, Experience Kissimmee and SUN n’ FUN. During this Ultimate Aviation Vacation, the lucky winner will enjoy free admission to SUN ‘n FUN 2017, as well as hotel accommodations, parking, and airfare. Experience Kissimmee will also offer attraction tickets for the entire week.

Included in the six-day, five-night package is round-trip airfare for a four, a half-day airboat tour at Boggy Creek Airboat Rides, six days and five nights at the Park Inn by Radisson Resort and Conference Center in Kissimmee, four single day passes to Fun Spot America, and a $250 gift card for car rentals.

But perhaps the most enviable prize will be flying in a World War II P-51 Mustang alongside veteran pilot Lee Lauderback, the president and CEO of Stallion 51. However, not only will you get to fly in the Mustang, you will also get to fly it under Lauderback’s instruction, using the dual controls. This will be a once in a lifetime ride for the lucky winner.

The winner will be declared on Friday, July 29, at EAA’S Air-venture at Oshkosh. All of the income collected during the ACE Maker Raffles will go to backing the Aerospace Center for Excellence (ACE), which is situated on the SUN ‘n FUN Campus at the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport in Florida. The Aerospace Center for Excellence (ACE) is renowned for its technology, engineering, science, and math based aviation programs that incorporate STEM-based teaching techniques.

For more details, and to purchase raffle tickets (at a cost of $20 a ticket), head over to the official Sun ‘n Fun contest page. Full rules and regulations regarding the contest can be found here.
