Shell Aviation’s AeroShell Lubricants has been the proud sponsor of the aerobatic display team since 2003, with the pilots relying on the company’s high-quality engine oils.
 
Asked about the re-signing, Team Lead, Mark Henley said: “We are thrilled to have AeroShell on board as our co-pilot for the next three years and we look forward to continuing this strong partnership. As our primary sponsor, AeroShell has been integral in helping the team grow and continue to perform at the high-level our fans expect. I have said this before, but when we fly wing tip to wing tip, there is no other oil I would trust.”
 
The extension of the partnership comes as the AeroShell Aerobatic Team prepare to entertain crowds at this year's Sun ‘n Fun International Fly-in and Expo in Lakeland, Florida, April 10-15. Debuting a refreshed paint scheme making their AT-6 Texan Aircraft brighter and more visible than ever, the Team will be hard to miss during the night show on Saturday and day shows on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. 
 
Attendees at Sun ‘n Fun will have the opportunity to take their own virtual flight with the Team at the AeroShell booth in Hangar C. The booth will have AeroShell gurus on hand to take questions and share their expertise. Visitors will also be able to take advantage of great show specials on oil and pick up exclusive 2018 Sun ‘n Fun posters and AeroShell merchandise.
 
Vanessa Boag, General Manager, Shell Aviation Lubricants, added: “It is with great pleasure that we have extended our partnership with the AeroShell Aerobatic Team. The team has a rich history entertaining crowds across North America and we are proud to continue supporting Mark and his team, giving them the protection and performance they need for their demanding routines.”
