Sweet Aviation to Host Open House

Release from Sweet Aviation Sweet Aviation, a Fort Wayne-based flight school that also offers aircraft rentals and maintenance and is located in Smith Field Airport, is hosting its annual Spring Open House this Saturday, June 2, from 9 AM to 12 PM at Smith Field Airport at 902 West Ludwig Road in Fort Wayne. Free breakfast will be served until 11 AM, while supplies last. They’ll also have a free bounce house and other kids’ activities, including arts and crafts; discounted airplane and helicopter rides for just $30; distinctive military and service aircraft on display, including a 1950’s military trainer, the T-28 Trojan; and R.C. model demonstrations from Phil’s Hobby Shop. Sweet Aviation, which is owned by Sweetwater founder and President Chuck Surack, continues to experience sustained growth, continually adding to their staff and fleet to provide the best possible aircraft training and rental options. The latest addition to the Sweet Aviation fleet, which will be on display Saturday, is a Cirrus Vision SF-50, also known as a “Vision Jet.” According to Cirrus, it’s the world’s first single-engine personal jet, designed to be a relatively affordable and convenient alternative to traditional private jets. Sweet Aviation’s Vision Jet is just the 25th produced and one of very few available to the public for training and rental. This event is free and open to the public of all ages.
