A General Aviation Dynasty Continues To Grow There are few families so uniquely identified with the world of general aviation as is the Lopresti clan. For those not familiar with the LoPresti legacy, the patriarch of the brood, Roy Lopresti, was the prolific and innovative aircraft designer was the creative force behind the Grumman Tiger, Cheetah, Cougar and the Mooney 201, 232, 252 and 301. Oh, and also NASA's Lunar Lander. What you might (NOT) call an underachiever... David Lopresti recently talked with Aero-TV about his family... and especially of his Dad. LeRoy "Roy" LoPresti did so much during his lifetime... a legacy now carried on by his family. For more than three decades, Roy was the reigning prince of light aircraft design, putting his stamp on some of the most well-known aircraft in the world and his last, unfinished, work is finally about to see production. LeRoy designed the FURY after modeling the bird on the much lauded Globe Swift, while his sons continue his legacy and the brand LoPresti. The LoPresti family has been in business in Vero Beach, Florida since 1987. In addition to the Fury aircraft, the family has a variety of high performance STC’s for aircraft including, Hawker jets, Bell helicopters, Mooney, Grumman and Piper piston and piston aircraft. Their designs and manufactured modifications dramatically improve the safety and performance of all types of aircraft. With certifications on over 220 different models, providing for over 72,000 aircraft, LoPresti claims industry leadership in HID lighting for aviation and has installed thousands of aftermarket kits. There are now six divisions within the company: Aerodrome, Fleet Ops, Engineering, Fury, SkyStruck and SpeedMerchants. In 1991, Roy formed LoPresti Speed Merchants, and located in Vero Beach, Florida. Now with more than 40 Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) and Parts Manufacturing Authorizations (PMAs), plus patents and copyrights, LoPresti Aviation and Florida's Sebastian Municipal Airport (X26) broke ground on a new $1.4 million hangar on July 19, 2008, marking the beginning of a 15-year lease agreement. The LoPresti team has moved into part of the airport administration building and expects to complete a move into the hangar facility soon after. The remaining divisions will continue operation in Vero Beach, FL.

OK... We Admit It, We're BIG Fans! Most of the world has seen him fly -- but often in the guise of some other person... whether it be James Bond or The Phantom. The man behind the stick for some of aero-movie-dom's most famous scenes is none other than JW "Corkey" Fornof... one of the best pilots in the biz and a helluva nice guy. Better yet, he claims to be ANN's biggest fan... and with that particular approbation (one he hasn't been bashful about voicing -- Thanks!), it seemed only natural that he become the subject of an Aero-TV feature. Fornof is more than James Bond's 'stand-in pilot.' Corkey is a living/flying legend... for all the right reasons. Corkey flew with his father, J.W. "Bill" Fornof, in a world famous two ship air show with matching bronze Bearcats for a number of years (until Bill's tragic loss in 1971). Their airshow business was based in Houma and involvced routines built around the flying of the T6, Mustang and his favorite warbird, the rotund but formidable Bearcat. He has over 17,000 hours in over 287 different types of aircraft and has worked as a test pilot, corporate pilot, and formed the first civilian jet demonstration team. He is a member of the Screen Actors Guild and the Motion Picture Pilots Association -- among others. He has planned, organized and flown some of the most thrilling aviation stunts in movies -- movies with immediately familiar names -- like License to Kill, Face Off, Moonraker, The Phantom, or Six Days and Seven Nights. And to add to these distinctions, he's flown for over 100 commercials and even done his thing on MTV. These days, though, Corkey is living a love affair while extolling the virtues of the little sporty two place plane that will not die... Roy Lopresti's exquisite "Fury." Corkey loves this thing, noting that, "The LoPrestiFury flies like a little fighter. It does everything my Mustang would do except 500 kts... This is one sweet ride. Roy LoPresti was right on when he designed this plane. The Fury is perfect for aerobatics or cross country flying". The Lopresti gang knew what they were doing when they drafted Corkey to be the Aerial Ambassador for their dream-plane. The Lopresti camp rightly notes that, "If you're going to show off a fast, sexy, high performance aircraft, it helps to have a secret agent as your pilot. The Fury possesses the thrilling excitement of air combat or an aerobatic WWII fighter. It's precision and perfection allows smooth rolls and figure 8s. One can glide cross-country in this leather-seated beauty listening to tunes of your choice through the Bluetooth Headset and 'Intuition' Ipod system." So, for now, Corkey tours the aviation world with the Fury, stopping at air shows and aviation establishments all over the country -- and taking on the occasional film job. The Fury program benefits immensely from his demonstrations and spokesmanship... while demonstrating the charms of the single engine, retractable two seat sport aircraft designed by LoPresti Speed Merchants and destined for serial production. Roy's dream lives on, courtesy of his son, Curt, who has is realizing his father's dream by pushing to manufacture and market the Fury in the not too distant future. This 222 mph airplane sports a bubble canopy, sticks, economical operating costs, aerobatic performance and a sweet soul that offers excellent handling. ANN and Aero-TV look forward to meeting the first of the new generation of Fury owner/pilots -- ASAP.

Every good superhero requires a supercar so we're building one. In this test scene for our first feature "Bobman" we shot the two actors beginning the destruction of an unsuspecting Lincoln Towncar. Over the next year or so we hope to have the car finished and ready for production to begin on the actual feature. This scene was written and directed by Peter Ciani and shot by Chris Williams and A.J. Lopresti. It was also produced and edited by Chris Williams. This was also our first time shooting with multiple cameras at once.
