KISSIMMEE, Fla. (November 13, 2013) — The Kissimmee Gateway Airport would like to congratulate its airport business, Signature Flight Support, for its success in raising over $3,100 for the Wounded Warrior Project over Veterans Day weekend. Signature’s Fly-In pancake breakfast and silent auction, held on Saturday November 9th, attracted pilots from throughout Central Florida as well as members of the local community who “drove in” for the special event.
The Fly-In featured vintage military vehicles displayed by the Osceola Veterans Museum, a WW II P-51 Mustang fighter airplane displayed by Stallion 51 Corporation, classic cars displayed by the Muscle Car Network and a late model Cessna aircraft displayed by Sunstate Aviation. The Osceola Cadet Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol also had an exhibit and posted the colors to open the event. Corporate sponsor Fun Spot contributed an outstanding donation which added to the days success.
