SAFEE Flight’s SFL Air Expo is a two day event that will take place on Friday, April 21st, 2017 with a day of educational program for students and educators at all grade levels. The following day – Saturday, April 22nd, 2017 – will be open to the general public. We encourage pilots to fly-in to Opa-Locka airport and the community can drive-in for the second day of the event. Briefings are conducted by pilots, aviation enthusiasts, air traffic controllers, flight schools, technicians and other members of the aviation industry. In addition, youth will have the opportunity to take Discovery Flights, for small fee, on Cessna 172 aircraft with Certified Flight Instructors.
Miami and Fort Lauderdale are both major international aviation hubs. 1 in 4 jobs in Miami is related to aviation. The expo, the camps and the academies are all part of a SAFEE’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) outreach programs coordinated by the FAA, Miami-Dade and Broward Schools, colleges, universities and local aviation and aerospace industries and organizations. SAFEE’s goal is to introduce as many youth, young adults, and members of our community to the huge impact that aviation has in South Florida. Join us as we reach and launch into the skies that have no limits!
