Hi Doug.

Oh the memories !!!   B)

I loved some of the old slogans that appeared on items from pamphlets to T shirts or whatever, done in fun;

 

Liftair—“the happy hookers” picture of a Heli with longline

Bow Helicopter- “There is nothing like a Bowjob”

Shirley Helicopters- “a Bowjob is nice but not as good as a Shirley”

Buffalo airways(I think a mistake)— fly with buffalo and never walk again(pic of a piper airplane on shirt)

am sure are more. No disrespect meant just stuff from another time.

Having worked there for many years a long time ago it was a brilliant company. The ownership knew how to run a aviation company. You had to work hard and they expected it. But, the rewards were great.

Could go on and on about the President he was a hands on type.of individual. He was one of a kind... hard and tough but a huge heart. 

Stabbed him in the hand on a hunting trip by accident once. The look on PW's face was priceless. He always thought he ran the company little did he know there was a little lady who actually took are of the issues!!!🤣😁🤣😁

Many great memories. They will be missed.
