TIME TO SCRAP HER! To BEECH or Not to BEECH – That is the BONANZA!


Well, it came down to this inspection.

What would YOU DO?   Music featured: “Roam” B-52’s Special thanks for Propellerhead Aviation for providing their facility and expertise in this adventure.  If you need work done on your […]

I am NOT Jumping Out of an Airplane! [Part 1]


For my birthday, David decided to surprise me.  He has never really surprised me in the 8 years we have been together, at least not on this level.  I don’t do well with surprises. I am a control freak and when I’m not in control is stresses me out. There are two parts to this series because it was too long and just too good to put all into one.  I really hope you enjoy making fun of me and […]

Celebrating the Day My Mother Brought This Ball of Fire into the World


Today is my birthday and I can’t tell you how excited I am to be here!  I put together a video that has some clips of my favorite activities, especially flying and riding dirt bikes.   To turn another year old is very exciting in my book because if this was before 1990, I probably wouldn’t be here. I love the career I have and the people around me.  This year is an exciting year for me because I some […]

I Am The Product of Blood, Sweat, and 5606.


When I was a little girl, my father brought me to the airport on a daily basis. I can’t recall a time that I wasn’t at the airport (other than ballet lessons.)  Before I was 12 or 13 I didn’t mind it much, in fact, I really enjoyed being at the airport.  But after I hit the teenage years, my interest faded because all my friends were going to the beach while I was performing annuals and 100 hours at […]

Why the aviation industry is in a downward spiral.


What am I going to do with all these aircraft parts lying around?  Where do you sell airplane parts?  Where do you buy airplane parts?  What is this worth? By Rachel Payne, Owner of Fast Aviation These are the commonly asked question I get as an aircraft salvage business owner. In fact, it is the first words out of someone’s mouth almost 75% of the time! (Other than ‘Do you have a sister?’) In all actuality, these are very important […]
