LoPresti First Saturday, which will be held at the company’s new facility at Sebastian Airport (KX26) in Florida, will feature airboss Wayne Boggs, who will show attendees what it’s like behind the scenes at an air show.
The monthly event includes a charity breakfast, which begins at 9 a.m. Boggs’ presentation is slated for 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. This month’s charity breakfast will benefit Boggs’s personal charity choice, the Mid-Florida Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. A $5 donation is requested.
Boggs’s history is one totally immersed in flight. His mother served as a WASP in World War II and he spent 10 years in the Marine Corps, followed by 40 years with the FAA. He worked at Chicago’s O’Hare Air Terminal in Air Traffic Control and taught at the FAA Academy. He also served as the Chief of Staff for the Air Traffic Systems Requirements Directorate in Washington, D.C.
For many years, he worked as the controller for some of the largest air shows in the East and eventually made it his full-time career, including serving as airboss for Sun ‘n Fun in Lakeland, Fla., every year.
Every first Saturday LoPresti hosts an event with speakers, with the proceeds from the breakfast benefiting a variety of charities.
