“Miramar is an international hub for aviation and the goal is to introduce and expose as many children, young adults and residents—particularly those in the STEM programs—about the vast opportunities in aviation. I encourage the South Florida community to participate—especially the youth,” said Mayor Wayne Messam.

“Based right here in Miramar, Spirit Airlines is proud to be supporting the Miramar Aviation Expo,” said Laurie Villa, Spirit Airlines’ Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer. “We are dedicated to teaching and inspiring future aviators of all ages and we could not be more proud to do it right here in own backyard. With over 800 team members working in Miramar, I have no doubt some of the participants attending this expo may one day find themselves working on or even piloting one of our aircraft.”
