1966 Beechcraft Bonanza V35TC: To Rebuild or Part Out-That is the Question!


2017 has ended and there is a new year upon us!  For me, 2017 was a year of learning experiences.  I especially learned that when you’re not emotionally strong, your business WILL suffer.  I believe I did my best to hide the personal issues in my life but in the end it still greatly affected my business.  Not because I was making bad decisions, but because I had an obligation to focus on my son and my shattering life at […]

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 […]

Recovering a Piper Arrow from the Florida Keys


Post Image

Our friend Tony from Antique Air down in the Keys gave a call and said he had an airplane we needed to move and sell. So, like any good salvage company we loaded everything up, hooked up the trailer, and headed to the beautiful keys. Usually when people go to the Keys they are on vacation…seems like everytime we go we are working! Just when you think this is going to be a somewhat easy job…as in “not too bad,” […]

Pulling a Bee out of the Woods


Post Image

Usually, we pull up to a hangar and load an airplane up in the hot sun.  But this time, it was a little different.  Over 50 years ago, this airplane was disassembled and put out back with the intent to restore her.  During those 50 years, houses, trees, and even a septic system was built up around her.  Then came Fast Aviation with the challenge of pulling her out unscathed.  A 1947 Republic SeaBee     I am sure you […]
