“HOW HIGH…Is He Going?”


“Looks like there is – –   NO STOPPING Al Aldrich – – he is on a real “ROLL” – – and…   that is to entertain the crowd!”  How  “HIGH” can one go on one of those small  “Twirly Birds”

 Easy to do and lots of  FUN – especially if you can ride a  bicycle  – – build your own “mini helicopter  – -right there in your garage.

There are many  energetic “hobbyists –   and some of us are very handy with the most basic of tools – and with some good friends and or neighbors – – who also …  like to  FLY – –  can – –  in maybe 500 hours can build a very basic   “Mini-Helicopter” – – and  then …  take  the final  “Mini-BIRD” completed  with a special “name” that you have christened your  new  design  copter – – head out with friends – –   to an AIRPORT – –  near-by… for a first  testing out?” – And…a celebrating “PARTY”…   afterwards!

So many of our enterprising hobbyists who wanted recreational rotary-wing flight  – – have formulated plans and  with good preparation – have made a first class business for more like-minded pilots  – who want some great FUN – but  –  with  a much lower up front price. 


Take you choice – – – so many “Flying Hobbyists”  came in for an entire weekend to show off their special craft –  – and  – –  did  even  more  – – taking turns  – – entertaining in the “Beautiful Blue Sky”  – – and everyone with  cameras – – well – – just so busy taking  lots of pictures –  – so many while the chance to get them – – as it is not everyday – that you have such special “talent” – – doing what they do best!  – – “FLY” and  – “Fly with FRIENDS!”

“Let’s FLY…NOW!”


If you want to learn to FLY and have some  FUN – – “LET me show you how to do it…   NOW!”

This is Al Aldrich  – – and there are a lot of “LOOKERS” – – but in the looking  seem to be  afraid that they can not FLY – – since they are just…  ol’ fraidy-cats???

Just watching   “Al Aldrich”  take off and  FLY   all around the AIRPORT – – makes one think  – –  that they can do it too – – but when  it comes to sitting in the   that “Pilot’s seat” – – all of that  “get up and go” – just went out the door! – – Just watching someone do all kinds of  maneuvers in the air – – seems  as if   just  anyone can do the same  – – – but without that special  “NERVE” –  – “OH  Well” … – so many give up – – just at the moment – –  that the crowd is thinking that a NEW FLYER  is going up and show off – –   we all wait patiently…  just to see… will he… and what… will he try to  do!

“Catch your breath… and come out to the AIRPORT – – so we can  all have lots of FUN!”

“School Children take AIRPORT TOUR”


School children just love to visit different places…as their “Field Trips” with their teachers along to  explain all of the new and different things  – – in the specif place visiting – – as each business offers so much more  – –  than some others – – and “WOW” – “WHAT fun it is to go and visit  the local AIRPORT!”

Each group of children get to sit on bails of hay  – – set up in the trailer attached to  the tractor – – which is used to care for the grounds – summer time  all the grass needs to be cut – – and during the winter months … when it  will snow – –   all   the run-ways need to be cleared – – so that the airplanes can take off and land – –  but NOW… to make for a comfortable ride and trip for the children to see and visit all the various  areas of the AIRPORT.

The children have a marvelous time getting an  up close look at … and into some airplanes – – into hangars where the airplanes are kept – – and into the school room for  and where the “Sky-Divers” learn the rules of  – – “falling out of a perfectly  good airplane” and be able to land on the ground… all without  breaking their bones!

Some of the children that made the visit to the AIRPORT – – took home for their parents – special invitations  – – that their child can come back in the FALL – for a special party for the children and their parents – – since some of the pilots would be offering  FREE RIDES – – but parents had to go along – some children may or may not feel comfortable up in an airplane – and only the parents would be able to make that decision.

We also offered  Pilot Training Lessons – – for those young people – as some wanted to start as soon as they could – – so as to be  doing   something that if they waited – – would be  sidetracked  – – and maybe lose the opportunity to their  best dream – – and that is to  “Fly up and above the Clouds” – – the best place to be!

Airport owner and manager  – Al Aldrich – –  also…  – driver – tour guide – with all the answers – – and daughter, ALYSSA – in his arms – learning the ropes – – as good lessons that you learn early – – stay with you forever.

“Come – FLY with ME!”


Such a beautiful day…  “How about you coming up and FLYING  with us!”

This is baby ALYSSA and she is almost 10 months old.   Looks like  DADDY is taking  little ALYSSA for a perimeter – –  check ride around the AIRPORT – on his bike.

The weather is  so much better as each day comes and goes – – so NOW is the day to take that   FREE AIRPLANE RIDE  with ME today. – When you take the time and go flying – – – you will find that you will soon want to take lessons – and be at the AIRPORT – – every good chance   that you can – – –  to be  able to FLY up and over all the little homes – – below – – – and just to be up in those big beautiful  shades of the blue sky – –  it makes you feel like you are NOW  …  in the wonderful world – – the one you always want to be  in – –  because it is all enjoyment!

“TIMES a flying – – COME and FLY with ME!” – – “DADDY  and  ME!”
