Officials from the Sun ’n’ Fun Fly-In and the Polk County (Fla.) School Board last month broke ground on a $7.5 million facility that will house the Central Florida Aerospace Academy (CFAA), an aviation-oriented high school/career academy at the Sun ’n’ Fun organization’s Lakeland (Fla.) Airport headquarters. The facility will house up to 500 high school students at CFAA when it opens in August next year. The Aviation Education Foundation provided the money for the new facility, as well as an additional $500,000 for furniture, fixtures and equipment.
