Fly-In, LSA Demos, And Corkey Fornof Around LoPresti's New
Hanger In Sebastian, FL
The City of Sebastian is home to a
new LSA event that offers three days of aviation and local
activities for light sport pilots and the community, alike.
LoPresti Aviation will host the first annual 'LSA Holiday!' June
It all kicks off Friday night in LoPresti's new hangar facility
adjacent to the Sebastian Airport Administration Building, as
colorful Movie/Stunt/Test pilot, J.W. "Corkey" Fornof tells his
wild and crazy stories.
Saturday, early morning will begin with LSA flour bombing and
other fun aviation competitions. Opening the LoPresti First
Saturday charity breakfast event, Skydive Sebastian will
demonstrate their jumping skills to the beautiful backdrop of the
Sebastian skies and the sound of a steel drum band.
A lineup of knowledgable speakers will present all the ins and outs
of LSA. Some of the LSA manufacturers that will have their aircraft
on display include: Piper, Remos, Paradise, Evektor, Jabru and
SkyKits. LSA seminars and demos will answer the LSA pilot's, and
hopeful pilot's, questions. Nature seminars, fly-fishing
demonstration, and even massages will be ready for those wanting to
indulge further. Continuing into the afternoon, attendees may
choose from a range of activities including kayaking (night
kayaking too), wave running, golfing, surfing, hot air balloon
rides, fishing, boat tours, skeet shooting, skydiving, great
restaurants, and an awards dinner overlooking the Indian River
Sebastian Inlet, Florida
The LoPresti event will continue into Sunday for those that stay
to relax further. On the last day, coffee and bagels will accompany
some great hangar talk and stories.
The 'LSA Holiday!' grew from the desire of LoPresti Aviation,
the City of Sebastian, Sebastian Chamber of Commerce, and local
businesses to bring recreational aviation to the Sebastian Airport
and nearby areas. "When you fly into Sebastian, view the
world-known Sebastian Inlet and River, you understand why this is
such a special place. This community of gracious people are
enthusiastic about aviation. Their involvement and support of this
event is going to make this weekend one rockin' holiday.",
says Curt LoPresti, President of LoPresti Aviation. With that in
mind, the LoPresti folks invite you to transport yourself to an
area of natural beauty that offers the charm of a small fishing
village and small, welcoming airport.
