For those of you that have seen Part 1 of “This Girl Does NOT Want to Jump Out of an Airplane” you have waited long enough for Part 2! Disclaimer: Everything in this video is truly how I was that day, I had no notion of what was happening.  Nothing is scripted or acted out.  So basically, I’m an idiot in real life and on camera.     Music Credit: Overwerk- “WYWF” FREE DOWNLOAD : https://soundcloud.com/overwerk/wywf Follow & Share to […]

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,” […]

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a set of NOS B200 Blades for the electric prop setup […]

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 […]

Another Day, Another Airplane


Post Image

Well another day, another airplane ends up on our trailer. This time it was a 1973 Skyhawk Cessna 172 from Louisiana. The story behind this plane is a student pilot ran it out of fuel and on the emergency landing he flared at 50 feet and pretty much flattened her like a pancake. I think he would of made it with less damage if he would of performed a better soft field landing. Oh well, I guess you live (luckily) […]
