Yes, not quite full on sun since they are on the side of the house so they get shaded a bit by the house itself but very much out in the open. None of the orchids I have would survive there, but hers are doing really well. I’ll take some pics next time. I think humidity helps though, a day of less than 70% humidity here is pretty rare.

The Papilionanthe hybrids in the US are called "terete" or "quarter terete" Vanda hybrids, after their ancestor Papilionanthe teres, formerly Vanda teres. They should do well in that situation. In Singapore and south Florida people grow them as landscape plants in full sun, along with the large red Renanthera hybrids.
May the bridges I've burned light my way.
