Scheduling of airshow performers for the 41st Annual SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-In & Expo presented by Visit Florida and the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association scheduled for April 21-26, 2015 in Lakeland, FL is in full swing.  Helping to make attendance soar for this annual fund-raising event on the SUN ‘n FUN Convention Campus, the Breitling Jet Team and the USAF Thunderbirds will perform.  All event proceeds are returned to aviation-based STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) curriculums through year-round programs and activities at SUN ‘n FUN’s Aerospace Center for Excellence.


Breitling announced that the Breitling Jet Team will begin their first-ever United States tour at SUN ‘n FUN 2015.  The prestigious aerobatic display team is the first and largest of its kind; comprised of seven L-39 C Albatros jets, the team delivers a meticulous performance where the aircraft fly within 10 feet of each other, at speeds of almost 435mph and with up to 8G accelerations, embodying the very essence of daring, speed and audacity.  The team performs a rapid-fire succession of figures that are perfectly calculated, mastered, synchronized and fine-tuned down to the smallest detail.  Having flown across 36 countries around the world, the Breitling Jet Team will commence their “American Tour” by opening the SUN ‘n FUN event on April 21st and performing throughout the week.  “We are thrilled to announce the 2015 schedule for the Breitling Jet Team,” said Breitling USA President Thierry Prissert. “It will be the first time North American audiences will have a chance to see them, and witness the precision and unmatched skill that goes into their display. They are the epitome of Breitling with pilots who are dedicated to their craft and constantly pushing the envelope with their daring maneuvers.

”The Thunderbirds, the U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron, will perform on April 25-26th.  Thunderbirds have the privilege and responsibility to perform for people all around the world, displaying the pride, precision and professionalism of American Airmen.  In every demonstration, the team combines years of training and experience with an attitude of excellence to showcase what the Air Force is all about.  The sharply choreographed, drill-style ground ceremony kicks off the demonstration by showcasing the attention to detail and esprit de corps that defines enlisted members. As their jets take to the skies and fly only a few feet from wingtip to wingtip, the crowd gets a glimpse of the awesome skills and capabilities that all fighter pilots must possess. The solo pilots integrate their own loud and proud routine, exhibiting some maximum capabilities of the F-16 Fighting Falcon – the Air Force’s premier multi-role fighter jet.  While in Lakeland, the pilots, mechanics, medical staff and members of the USAF Thunderbird team will participate in community events, sharing information about career options and their commitment to excellence.  Student participation is being planned.
