The Spirit of Paradise
Somebody pinch me! After working for two years we finally finished a project that has been looming over our heads...literally.
The "Spirit of Paradise" will be the only float plane operating in Papua New Guinea and will be a lifeline for some 500,000 people. It will be based in an area where there is one hospital and most of the villagers live a good 14 day hike through the jungle away. In this plane we can reach most of those villages within an hour!
The plane is on tour around America at this time and will be on display at AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI from the 28th of July to the 4th of August. If you happen to attend be sure to visit us at the Vette Seaplane Base.
