Guest of Honor
Syd Stoat is a Florida-based space worker, who has supported over 200 rocket launches throughout the last decade. These missions explore the far reaches of our solar system, gather data about the changing earth, and will soon return astronauts to the moon. He’s a participant in the largest peaceful international cooperation in human history, the International Space Station. When you check the weather or navigate with your smartphone, you’re using technology that his team put into earth orbit. Before joining the space program, Syd supported experimental flight test and took care of jets you saw flying in your local airshow. Syd is an aerobatic pilot, flying high performance race planes, jet fighters, and vintage aircraft. For Syd, nothing is more important than improving your life through the science and technology of aerospace.
