In an exciting move it is our pleasure to announce the creation of Bede Aero-Southeast and the acquisition of a new facility in Florida, at Saint Lucie County International airport, Fort Pierce on the beautiful Treasure Coast.
Spectacular flying conditions and all year round sunshine were of course a major contributor to the decision to locate a facility in Florida for us. The airport at Fort Pierce is a real treasure and even boasts a separate practice runway used for touch and go and taxi practice also. The airport has a tremendously friendly air traffic control setup who are well used to helping and training pilots on a daily basis. The airport management have been extremely welcoming to us as we make plans to get the facilities ready to welcome builders kit buyers and enthusiasts alike.
Our time frame pushes us hard to be installed in the new buildings by mid summer after Air Venture, Oshkosh. At that point we will be looking to welcome people to the facility. Plans include a full builder assist package for all aircraft models we currently offer and we will be looking to offer a vacation package where we will source excursions for the family while you work on your aircraft! There is even a flight school on site where we can offer our pilots the chance to get current, start or finish their licences from Sport to PPL and onward! We will work with you to make sure you visit to the area is a truly memorable one.
"Disney and Sea World are close by as are the gorgeous beaches and excellent water sports and fishing. We are putting things in place to make a real dream vacation for you and your family when you come and visit us to build your airplane.We want the hundred or so hours you spend building the airplane to be a real dream come true for our clients and their families and we will as always do our absolute best to make this a real trip to remember."
Commented Philip Wyatt, who is running Bede Aero Southeast at the new facility.
In addition to builder assistance and aircraft sales, the new facility is intended to be a place where Bede Flyers in every shape and form can have somewhere to come to enjoy the social aspect of flying, the sunshine and the weekly BBQ and breakfasts. We are looking to welcome everyone who wishes to come to join us for fun in the sun this summer we will be in the World Wing booth #NE37 with our BD-17L with the new light sport wing on her.
We have lots of ramp space and tie down areas for our flyers and we intend to have some excellent features to the facility including a state of the art simulator and pilot shop offering up to date equipment and training on avionics software. We have great fuel prices and a wonderful environment to come enjoy all that we all love about aviation.

We Need Your Footage and Photos
A request goes out to all the wonderful pilots of Bede airplanes to help us with some initiatives for the coming year.
We want to be able to work on our overall presence in the aviation community by highlighting some of your experiences flying the airplanes. With that being said we are looking for good photos and in flight footage to use on our social media and marketing platforms and we would be very grateful to have some up to date photos and video footage to work with.
With our upcoming opening of the Florida facility a new and very exciting time is upon us and we want to work with our owners to really bring things alive. We would also welcome testimonials from our pilots and who knows, perhaps those that get involved might find a brand new Bede baseball hat with their aircraft model number on it winging its way to you as a thank you for your help!
For anyone able to help please contact
