We are pleased to welcome our new Stuart Air Show Executive Director, Skylar Gorman to the SAS family!

Skylar is excited to be a new addition to the Stuart Air Show team. A Martin County native, she recently relocated from Dallas, Texas back to her home state of sunny South Florida. Skylar attended the Stuart Air Show annually with her family for many years and will always remember the excitement leading up to the show. Her favorite part of the Air Show is the unwavering patriotism the community/ performers display to honor to their country.

Her background includes experience in the nonprofit/event planning arena. In the past, she has raised funds for educational scholarships and research grants for the National Athletic Training Association Foundation. Her most recent position held was the Development Director for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, serving the Treasure Coast and Palm Beach County. When she is not working you will most likely find her with her daughter, Hadley. Or taking advantage of the tropic weather – fishing, boating, and enjoying the paradise that we all call home!

Welcome Skylar! We are happy to have you on board!

While we begin to explore the Stuart Air Show’s history over the past three decades to celebrate our 30th Anniversary, we want to start by learning more about aviation in our community. We decided to share a little bit about our town’s history with the US Army Grumman OV-1 Mohawk.
