Channel your inner pilot with an Audi Stuart Air Show flight experience AND celebrate those "flight wings" with VIP upgrades

STUART, FL (Oct. 4, 2017) -- The 2017 Audi Stuart Air Show is just four weeks away from takeoff. And, for those of you who have secretly dreamed of being a Top Gun pilot, cross that adventure off your bucket list by flying high above the air show action in a vintage aircraft or military helicopter.

Over the three-day air show (Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017) several exclusive and limited opportunities will literally put you in the pilot's seat, when you reserve a thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime ride in one of the following aircraft:
  • Cobra Attack Helicopter. Both standard (6-7 minutes) and extended (13-14 minute) flights available Saturday and Sunday between 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and throughout the day.

  • UH-1 Huey Helicopter. One of the most recognizable and iconic helicopters in history! Flights are 8-10 minutes; available Saturday and Sunday between 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., and throughout the day.

  • T-6 Texan. Fly like the 'aces of yester-year' in this classic fighter-trainer of World War II. Flights are available between 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.  and after 4 p.m., both Saturday and Sunday. Two 'instructional' flight options are also available: a pattern-only-flight, lasting for 15 minutes, and an aerobatic flight, lasting for 20-30 minutes.
Don't let the fun stop there-celebrate your "flight wings" with a VIP ticket upgrade ranging from special Spectator Seating on the show line ($8/day per person upgrade), to shaded seating in the Heineken Beer Garden, which includes two complimentary beers ($25/ day per person upgrade) or entry into the Florida Craft Beer Experience, featuring show-line seating and unique and delicious craft beers-two complimentary-hosted by brewery representatives from Walking Tree and Tequesta Brewing Company ($25/day per person upgrade), or access to the Bombers Squadron sponsored by CenterState Bank, providing great views of the action from show line seating, lunch, adult beverages and soda ($60/day per person upgrade).

The air show's traditional Friday Night air show, complete with a crowd-pleasing firework spectacular, sponsored by Ron Rowars, Trial Attorney, and twilight aerobatics is always a sell-out. Grab those tickets before they are gone to the show or treat your friends and family to show line Spectator Seating ($8 per person) or the highly popular TDBank sponsored Dirty Flight Suit Party, complete with a buffet dinner, complimentary beer and wine, live entertainment, and a premier viewing for the night time flight action. Besides offering the best seats in the house, at this "Top Gun" party, you'll mix and mingle with the performers and pilots of the show, as well as the air show sponsors, supporters and other aviation aficionados.
