March 8th was declared as Aerospace Center for Excellence Day by Lakeland Mayor Howard Wiggs in 2016. That Tuesday marked a new life as an educational facility of a Boeing 727 known as the Piedmont Aerospace Experience on the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus. This was just the beginning of the unique opportunities available to students at ACE. Shortly following, the Lakeland Aero Club commemorated the opening of their high school flying club hangar and more recently, the technologically advanced laboratories in the Ramus SkyLab Innovation Center opened. Please join us for an open house on Tuesday, March 8th, 2022 to experience the Aerospace STEM learning programs offered to the next generation of aerospace professionals. There will be free admission from 10am-2pm, along with light refreshments. Visitors will be able to tour SkyLab, Florida Air Museum, the Piedmont Aerospace Experience, the Buehler Restoration Skills Center, and the Lakeland Aero Club.
