About Me – Chris

I want to help you in making a choice that will possibly be a reminder of Achievement, Loyalty, or just a gift between friends. A model that adorns the desktop of a professional is displayed to reflect a career. No matter what the reason, an Executive Airplane Model holds memories as well as stories associated with events that once soared.

Philosophy of Flight

I took a class in college called ‘Philosophy of Flight’. My professor, Richard Bach, (he wrote “Jonathan Livingston Seagull”) inspired my dream of flying. He did so by advocating the need to become one with the airplane. I’ve never forgotten that.  Today, I continue to have a love affair with the airplane. In my office, I am reminded of the many wondrous adventures that I experienced; I can look at a scale model of the Aircraft that I flew and it touches a nerve every time.

Having started my professional flying career as a Naval Aviator in the U.S. Marine Corps, I was nick-named Airdale by my drill instructor when I was in OCS (Officer Candidate School). Marine drill instructors are ‘ground pounders’, ‘grunts’, and ‘leather necks’. They are there to instruct the recruits how to be a Marine and fight on the ground. I was there to Fly in the air. My drill instructor was not pleased. I was immediately labeled an ‘Airdale’ separating me from the rest of the recruits. My life took a nasty turn through OCS. I have proudly carried the moniker of ‘Airdale’ since.

Provide and Inspire the Dreams that are held within.

I have come to realize that appreciation for one’s achievements, whether they are your own or that of a colleague can be displayed in a number of different ways. A career spans many years. A parting gift to reflect that investment to a company can be an Executive Airplane Model from the management team. A gift, that will be appreciated and one which will always hold and inspire the memories of a Dream that has come true.

I want to provide Aircraft Models, which to this day continues to inspire me. You too can choose a model to reflect the dreams that have inspired and motivated.
If you ever need a hand or have questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,

Chris
