Sweepstakes Storch Sweepstakes WinnerWinner Takes to the Skies

Sarah Rovner of Houston, Texas was the Grand Prize Winner of our Explore, Express, Experience™ Sweepstakes. Sarah had the opportunity on Saturday, August 31st to take to the skies in our Fieseler Storch with none other than Mr. Kermit Weeks at the controls. Sarah came such a long way to redeem her prize, we thought it only right to really "drop the rope" and give her an experience to remember. Check out this snippet of Sarah's flight!

What's That You Say?
  
We LOVE to hear what our guests are saying about their experience at Fantasy of Flight. Check out this  Trip Advisor Review from Susan T. in Fort Myers, FL.
  
"We thought that we would stop at this attraction for a couple of hours but instead we spent the day! When it was time to leave we felt as if we had not seen everything so we upgraded our admission to an annual pass in order to revisit the things that felt rushed. Kermit Weeks' aviation collection is amazing and displayed beautifully in the hangers. The planes are not just "a pretty face," but actually can be flown. 

We took a tram tour of the facilities and were transported to the Golden Hill hangar by trolley. The Compass Rose Cafe had delicious food in a nostalgic setting. It was a great day and we are looking forward to our next visit. There is an interactive activity room for children. This is a super place for adults and children alike."

Spark of the Month - Alicia
Kandice Stephens, Operations Manager (left) with Alicia aka "Rosie the Riveter" (right)

Alicia has transformed the role of "Rosie the Riveter", prior to transitioning from the WWA team to Entertainment, Alicia would visit on her "off" days to ride the trams and learn about the collection. Most recently she has jumped in and can be found doing anything and everything that is asked of her - except maybe walking through the ENTIRE immersion (but she's working on it!). Congratulations Alicia!

Employee of the Month
