Air Show planned for LoPresti Grand Opening Celebration

SEBASTIAN — LoPresti Aviation will celebrate its new location at 210 Airport Drive, just off Main Street in Sebastian, with a Grand Opening Air Show as part of their series of First Saturday Charity Breakfast and Pilot Fly-In, beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday December 5.

J.W. “Corkey” Fornof will demonstrate some of his best “turning and burning” moves with an Aerial Acrobatics Show, and the morning will also feature hot air balloon rides, a skydive demonstration and displays of antique cars and airplanes. The morning starts off at 9 a.m. with a delicious breakfast of bacon and eggs, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, a whole array of muffins and fruit plus steaming cups of java.  Corkey’s crowd-pleasing stunts and aerial antics aboard his LoPresti Fury aircraft will begin at 10 a.m.  Later, Corkey will entertain the crowd from the ground, sharing stories of his Hollywood movie experiences.

Attendees may fly-in, drive in or walk in; all they ask is that you bring in a new unwrapped toy or non-perishable food for the Roseland Food Pantry to fill their Christmas Food Baskets.
