AeroTrek Fight Academy (AeroTrek) is pleased to help lead the way in organizing a special flyover this Friday, November 13, 2020, at 4:00 pm in honor of our local and regional first responders and healthcare heroes who are on the front lines in the fight against Covid-19. AeroTrek is a flight school headquartered at Wadsworth Municipal Airport with a fleet of airplanes stationed at Wadsworth, Medina and Wayne County airports. The flyover will begin at 3:30 pm at Wadsworth Municipal Airport where there will be a short ribbon cutting of the newly paved runway 10/28, led by the Mayor of Wadsworth Robin Laubaugh, City Administrator, Robert Patrick, as well as the co-founders of AeroTrek, Jason Lorenzon, Nick Belluardo, Ron Palitto, and Bryon Palitto. “On behalf of the Wadsworth Airport, our flying community, and all those who enjoy the airport, we are very thankful to the City of Wadsworth for their ongoing support, most recently through a grant they received to restore runway 10/28,” said Bryon Palitto. Also in attendance will be the Secretary of State, Frank LaRose, Mayor of Richfield, Michael Wheeler, Mayor of Rittman, Bill Robertson, Wadsworth Councilman, Tom Stugmyer, City of Rittman Administrator Bobbie Beshara, and Wadsworth Councilman at Large, David Williams.
“As the numbers of those sickened by the disease continue to rise, it is increasingly important to thank those who are battling the pandemic every day, and AeroTrek is proud to let them know just how much we appreciate them,” said attorney Jason Lorenzon, co-owner of AeroTrek.
Captain Gary Baker will lead this special mission from 4:00 – 5:00 pm in his smoke producing airplane followed by the AeroTrek fleet who will fly in formation over the city of Wadsworth, Rittman, Medina, Fairlawn, and Richfield. Those who wish to see the ribbon cutting and watch the fleet take off will be able to do so safely by wearing masks and social distancing.
