High in the Sky, It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane…Yea, It’s a Plane!

Stunt Pilots Zip to Fall AutoFest for an Aerobatics Stunt Show and Autograph Sessions
Friday, October 13, 2017

Carlisle Events and Carlisle Auctions have thousands of cars and millions of parts for sale as part of Fall AutoFest at the SUN ‘n FUN Campus in Lakeland, November 10-12, 2017. What this show will have that no other central Florida car show can offer though, is maybe THE best reason to swing by the facility to check it all out. In conjunction with the automotive weekend itself, Carlisle Events is pleased to announce the inclusion of an aerobatics show, with some of the top names in the hobby participating.

Since the SUN n’ FUN Campus is known for its massive air show each spring and annually supports the future of the aeronautical hobby, adding the air element made perfect sense. The air show takes place Saturday, November 11 at 12 p.m.

Guests are invited to turn their attentions to the sky as National Aviation Hall of Famer Patty Wagstaff offers plenty of ooooh’s and ahhhh’s as she defies gravity from thousands of feet up. In addition to Patty, taking flight will be Gene McNeely, Paul Schulten and his mascot Orville the Eagle. Enjoy the fun in the sky AND the fun on the ground with Carlisle Events, Carlisle Auctions and some amazingly skilled pilots too!

Daily admission is $10, with a weekend pass available at just $20. Further, gates open each day at 8 a.m. and offer access to a massive swap meet, car corral, family activities, a two-day collector car auction and of course the air show. In addition to flying, these talented pilots will sign autographs, while Orville the Eagle poses for photos with enthusiasts too. Complete event details are available via, while auction information is available at
