It seems as if just yesterday we were at EAA Airventure Oshkosh 2014

Founded in Wisconsin in 1953 by Paul Poberezny, who originally started the organization in the basement of his home for builders and restorers of recreational aircraft. Although homebuilding is still a large part of the organization’s activities, it has grown to include almost every aspect of recreational aviation and aeronautics.

In fact we took a poll on our Florida Airpark Google + asking our fellow aviators what their favorite general aviation expo was and we weren’t surprised to have Oshkosh bring in over 50% of the votes.favorite aviation expo


If you are going to be at Oshkosh come visit us! We are right across the way from Sun N Fun at Hangar C Booth # 3174.

best residential aviation communities


For the past few years, many, many forums and seminars and articles were presented to pilots and the like on Airparks and Airpark living. A frequent question is “What makes an Airpark really great?” Well, here goes an attempt to I.D. the 5 star airpark!
What is an airpark anyhow? To my view an airpark life is real estate in an aviators focused special-purpose community. It is a community. A unique place, dedicated to sharing an interest in aviation.

This usually consists of runway(s), common areas, taxiways, in addition to the normal residential real estate considerations. Read More

Feet on the Ground and Phis in the Sky

Imagine walking onto the Indianapolis Speedway on a warm June day more than a century ago—not to see cars speeding around a racetrack—but some of the world’s first airplanes flying through the air. Famous Phi James Clifford Turpin, Purdue 1908, made his mark on history as an aviation pioneer as member of the Wright brothers’ exhibition flying team, which performed that day at the speedway.
