GA Town Hall

Presented by:


SUN 'n FUN is very proud to host a unique opportunity for GA pilots and enthusiasts to meet and have an informative dialogue with some of the aviation industry's most prolific leaders.

On Saturday, December 5th at 10AM the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) will be sponsoring a General Aviation Town Hall, where pilots can submit questions and get live answers on the state of GA in the COVID era.

SUN ‘n FUN / ACE President and CEO John Leenhouts will moderate the event, and he along with AOPA President and CEO Mark Baker, and Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) President, CEO and Board Chairman Jack Pelton will answer predetermined questions and take some from the audience as well.

"GA is our family, and we are very fortunate to have these two industry leaders as our guests to catch us all up on the state of things in the midst of these unusual times. I am very pleased to welcome our friends and partners Mark Baker and Jack Pelton to Lakeland for what I know will be a very informative session." - John "Lites" Leenhouts

“What a year, and what better time to get out and see my aviation friends again. I’m looking forward to the December SUN ’n FUN event, and discussing how even in this crazy year, general aviation is flying high and why we’re such a special community. Should be a great and productive time in Lakeland – even if we’re socially distanced!” - Mark Baker

“We have all gone through hell dealing with the pandemic. Now is the time to get together and talk about how we will go forward responsibly. I am looking forward to the discussion at the (December) SUN 'n FUN Town Hall” - Jack Pelton
