While guests dined and bid to support general aviation at the AOPA Foundation’s A Night for Flight fundraising banquet Sept. 22, acrobatic performers with AiRealistic kept the crowd in rapt awe at the magical feats of human motion and interpretation. The story of man’s love of flight evolved over the course of the evening as bodies flew through the air in an amazing choreography of motion and sound.
AiRealistic featured five performers, including a nine-year-old girl who dangled, twirled, and flipped from strips of cloth draped from the ceiling. A trapeze artist also performed, contorting his body in ways unimaginable.
The group’s creative team has performed with Cirque du Soleil, Dragone, De La Guarda, and the Metropolitan Opera.

A state-of-the art medical facility on remote Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay serves as a lasting memorial to the late Dr. David B. Nichols’ dedication to providing medical care to the community for 30 years. Now, Nichols’ aviation legacy—flying a Cessna 182 or Robinson R44 to the island every Thursday to provide that care—is set in stone.
Daher-Socata announced that it had installed the first Garmin G600 and GTN 750 avionics in one of its 2004 TBM 700C2 airplanes.
Even brief flight under actual conditions can expose how well your basic instrument flying is serving.
