Get Your (LoPresti) Fury Going For Christmas
LoPresti Wednesday announced that position holders for its two-place 215-mph-on-10.5-gph cross-country and aerobatic Fury aircraft will now have first dibs on special pricing for the first 60 Furys produced ... but there's a twist. The company says it has the names of 615 individuals who ordered 615 aircraft; however, through years of difficulty in bringing the aircraft to market, some of those names have moved on to new addresses and the company has lost touch. "To fulfill a promise" LoPresti is reaching out to those 615 individuals and will "start taking orders Monday morning." The first 60 from that 615 will secure their aircraft at a reserve price only available to the previous position holders. The company plans to build the aircraft at its yet to be built Belen, N.M., facility (groundbreaking is set for January). But that's not all. LoPresti is working to create a "Top Gun program." Working with the State of New Mexico, LoPresti hopes to offer "one week of Full Immersion Air Combat" offering "five days of more fun than you have ever had in an aircraft." Described in the company's press release, participants will (after training) suit up, grab an aircraft (a Fury?) adorned with laser cannons and smoke, and see who comes back victorious. And the company threatens, "that's just the beginning." For more information about order positions and future plans at the company, contact Curt LoPresti at 866-342-4757 or Curt@LoPrestiFury.com.
