It was a day of flying, friends, food and fun Feb. 20 at Feliciana Airpark in Jackson, during the open house and ribbon-cutting for AutoGyro of Louisiana, owned by Stephen and Terry Rastanis, of Walker.

The East Feliciana Parish Chamber of Commerce hosted the ceremony, and flights in the couple’s MTO Sport model autogyro were offered for half-price.

The company, which offers gyrocopter sales, service, flights and instruction, opened in November and is the first to rent hangar space at the Aviation Business Development Complex at the Airpark.
