Notes

2023 Tickets for the 9/27 Club will be available this October!  We may be changing ticket vendors so the on-sale date has been delayed.

  • The new 9/27 Admission prices are reflected below and on the event ticket sales page.  The increase in ticket prices is due to the increased cost of literally everything.
  • The 2023 menu has also been updated below... so when tickets are ready, you will be all set to plan your time with us.
  • The Aeroshell Aerobatic team has given us a few “rides” to give away in the Club this year. There are a few conditions.

Flight with Aeroshell

If you purchase daily 9/27 Club tickets for Tuesday, Wednesday and/or Thursday, your name will automatically be entered into a drawing to "Win a Ride".  And yes, if you purchase a weekly 9/27 Club ticket your name will also be entered all three days. (One entry for each ticket purchased, so if you purchase four (4) Tuesday tickets you will get 4 entries for the flight).

    • The drawings will be held at LUNCHTIME each of those three days. You must be present to win!
    • A ticket will be pulled by a team member from Aeroshell.
    • The winner must be able to take their flight the following morning at 7:00 am.
    • You must be over 18 years old, you must be under 250 pounds, and you must be able to get into and out of the aircraft unassisted. (ladies must not be pregnant).

Fun Contest… If you make a short 30-second video of yourself in our official 9/27 Club T-Shirt and send it to me at nleenhouts@flysnf.org, a winner will be chosen at the end of October for a free one-day pass (day of your choice) to the 9/27 Club.

  • If you would like to enter the Fun Contest and need a 9/27 Club T-shirt, send us a donation of $25.00, your t-shirt size, and a self-addressed large envelope to SUN ’n FUN,  4075 James C Ray Drive, Lakeland, Florida 33811, ATTN: Nancy - 9/27 Club and we will send a shirt to you ASAP.

Other fun contests to follow….  I will update you on all information as soon as I have it.

See you in March/April!
