VERO BEACH, Fla., March 29, 2021 – After more than one year since the last tradeshow event, Piper Aircraft is excited to announce that it will exhibit at the 2021 SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-In & Expo, to be held in Lakeland, Fla. April 13-18. Piper’s presence will be appropriately sized and will include the implementation of several safety measures designed to protect the health of attendees as well as the Piper team.
Piper’s static display will include the new M600 SLS with HALO safety system featuring Garmin Autoland, as well as foundational products from the trainer line up – the Piper Seminole and an Archer from ATP. Attendees will notice the lack of an enclosed space and a focus on open, fresh air spaces. Additionally, the use of facemasks, social distancing signage, and a hand sanitizer station with temperature reading capability will be the new standard. Product brochures will be available via download using QR codes and regular cleaning of hard and soft surfaces will take place throughout the day. The Piper exhibit will be in the manufacturers’ display area, along the walkway to the announcers stand in the northernmost exhibit area just south of the runway, MD-24C-MD-25B.
“The team has put much thought into developing standards and best practices to enable us to physically participate at industry events while still facing a pandemic”, said Ron Gunnarson, VP Sales, Marketing and Customer Support. “Given our commitment to safety and the measures that we are implementing, we feel confident that being present at Sun-n-Fun is the right choice. We are eager to spend time with our owners, vendors, as well as the many aviation enthusiasts who attend this event.”
