Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport-based FBO and MRO Banyan Air Service will host a customer-appreciation open house on September 14 to celebrate its 40th anniversary. The free event will feature exhibits, an aircraft static display, entertainment, product demonstrations, food and drinks, giveaways, and tram tours.
“It was 1979 when it all began, and it is hard to believe it’s been 40 years,” said Banyan president Don Campion. “It’s been a fantastic journey and it’s [to] our dedicated teammates and loyal customers that we owe our success.”
During the event, Banyan teammates will take turns sitting in a dunk tank to raise funds that benefit Banyan’s Egbe Hospital and School of Nursing revitalization project. Several vendors will also be exhibiting at the open house, including Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, FXE Flight Center, Garmin, Go Rentals, Ray-Ban Sunglasses, Snap-On Tools, and The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism. The aircraft static display will feature a HondaJet, Cirrus SR20, Diamond DA20, and Cessna 172 alongside cars and motorcycles from Rick Case Automotive Group.
