    Jetblue "SUN ’n FUN" Expo
     
    Students from Mr. John Carey's Aviation Operations class, Brittany Dowling and Thomas Reid, along with Assistant Principal Laura Holder-Gibbs from Nassau BOCES Barry Tech enjoyed an incredible experience on April 11, 2013. Included were 75 aviation students, teachers, guidance counselors and administrators from New York and Florida. After arriving in Orlando Florida, a JetBlue Airways Airbus A320 picked them up and flew them to Lakeland, FL for the thirty-ninth annual "SUN ’n FUN" International Fly-In & Expo. What began with a small group of dedicated aviation enthusiasts has grown into the second largest event of its kind in the world. Every April, aviation enthusiasts from around the globe enjoy one of the world’s greatest aviation conventions held at the "SUN ’n FUN" Complex at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport in Lakeland Florida.
