Summer is Time for Fun

This summer, we had a hot time celebrating aviation, our community, and our teamwork too! Out in the community and back at our hangar, this summer was a busy one. Hope you enjoyed yours too. See you in the skies!

Fun Times at RAI Jets!

Members of the RAI team were able to attend the 11th Annual Leaders of Tomorrow Gala by Textron, and participate in the Michigan Business Aviation Association (MBAA) annual golf outing.

We were also proud to host the kick-off dinner for the recent Kalamazoo, Michigan Talons Out Honor Flight for approximately 100 Vietnam veterans and their guests.

Summer is also a time for blockbuster movies! We treated our team to a private viewing of….what else? Maverick! Thumbs up, all around!

Finally, we topped off our summer by hosting a VIP special event—Fast Cars and Faster Jets—featuring Paco Chierici, formal naval aviator and producer of Speed & Angels. About 60 people attended the terrific evening which was co-sponsored by Aviation Risk Management Group (ARMG) and Fresh Coast Auto Detailing. It was a fun time for all! For a full wrap-up of the event, click here.

Spy-Posium Spy-Onsors

The SR-71 Spy-Posium event at the Kalamazoo AirZoo featured an up close and personal view of the only remaining SR-71B Blackbird that flew reconnaissance missions during the Cold War. We were proud to be a sponsor of this educational event.
