New Website with New Dates for the Aero Showcase 2022

Aero Affinity Holding Corporation has partnered with the City of DeLand to reimagine a major shift and exciting changes for the DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase.

Under new management, the well-known “DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase” will give way to “Aero Showcase”, which allows the possibility to explore not only the Sport and Recreational aviation market but also other segments of General Aviation as well.

“We are excited that a local company, Aero Affinity Holding Corporation, has decided to take over and rebrand this event which will now promote not only sport aviation but all aviation related activities at our airport. I believe this will help us grow more jobs at the DeLand Airport,” said City of DeLand Mayor Robert F. Apgar.

First launched in 2016, the DeLand Sport Aviation Showcase quickly became a major draw for Sport and Recreational partners, pilots and enthusiasts in the southeastern United States. Earlier this year, Sport Aviation Manager Jana Filip resigned to take a different position in the aviation field. With her resignation, the City of DeLand decided to transfer the event to a DeLand-based, select and experienced team of aviation professionals.

Filip encouraged everyone to continue to support the showcase in its new format.

“As I bid farewell to DeLand, my heart is warm knowing there are some dedicated individuals poised to keep a form of the Showcase alive!” Filip said. “Every aviation event, no matter the size, requires a team to make it happen. To all of you that made up my dynamic team – Team Leaders, Volunteers, Exhibitors, Media, Suppliers – and made Showcase happen under my watch, thank you and please join me in support of the future Showcases."
