 Kermit Weeks (pictured above) announced today that his “Fantasy of Flight” operations in Central Florida will close for daily operations on April 6.  In a letter to employees, Mr. Weeks said:

After 18 years of being in operation, it’s time we close the attraction and move forward toward creating the vision for what I know Fantasy of Flight can become.

Mr. Weeks has long emphasized that Fantasy of Flight should be seen as an experience, not a museum as most see it.  The facility will remain available to host weddings, meetings and corporate events, and Weeks said he plans to open part of the collection in a reduced capacity and admission price later this year but most of the staff will be let go in the coming months.

I visited Fantasy of Flight last year and I was very impressed with the operation and Kermit’s passion.  I wish everyone involved success in the future, wherever that future lies.
