You Have No Excuses Now! Third Class Medical Reform


When someone tells me they can’t get a medical or don’t try to get one because they believe they won’t get it, I call them on it. Now, this is not the case with everyone but a lot of pilot’s are timid to try to get a medical after a health issue arises because once the FAA denies you, it becomes difficult to obtain it again. I am the pilot that had open heart surgery and has a third class […]

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 […]

It’s a New Year For Fast Aviation


Post Image

A new beginning for a new year!  2015 was a very crazy year for business and for our personal lives.  Not long after being booted off Ebay in August of 2014, we were preparing for the big 2015 move of the business and into our new house. The 10 acre parcel next to Cedar Knoll in Geneva went from a large forest to a full functioning salvage yard, aircraft storage, office, and tear down facility. Every nut and bolt was […]

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,” […]

Aviation Photography


Post Image

Aviation photography has been around since the late 1800’s.  It first started with balloons and then either on the ground or in the air it took flight.  People make a living off of “aviation art.”  It’s one of my favorite areas of the art world.  I love everything from sculptures to photography.  Photography is by far my favorite though.  An airplane doesn’t have to move, primp, or smile to be beautiful.  It simply just is.   I have been in […]

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 […]
