Yeffa heads Flight Adventure Park
Sterling-based Flight Adventure Park CEO Steven L. Yeffa has been named chairman of the International Adventure and Trampoline Parks Association’s board, the family entertainment venue company announced in early May.
“We are thrilled to have Steve elected as our chair,” IATP Executive Vice President Bethany Evans said in a statement. “His vision and leadership is exactly what the IATP needs to continue driving the indoor adventure and trampoline park industry forward.”
Yeffa made the jump from vice chair of the IATP Board of Directors, a position he had held since fall 2020.
“It’s a tremendous honor to be elected as chairman of the IATP,” Yeffa said in a statement. “Our board is an incredible group which has worked tirelessly over the past two years, undoubtedly the most difficult and challenging periods our industry has ever faced. … Our collective mindset will continue to work toward ensuring our members are positioned for success and are equipped with what they need to assure the health and safety needs of their guests are met.”
Founded in 2012, IATP provides resources, education, training and regulatory and media support to owners and operators in North America, Asia, Australia, Central America, Europe, South America and the United Kingdom.
Flight Adventure Park has eight locations across the U.S. and owns and operates five locations branded as iSaute in Canada. The company’s indoor parks include trampolines, dodgeball, ninja warrior courses, virtual reality games and other activities.
