I will tell the story of how I met Lulu Miyasato and the Century companies. Century Aviation was not a financially viable company. For over fifteen years Century Aviation lost money each and every year and was finally sold in bankruptcy in 2005.  

I was the senior executive at Hemmeter Aviation when it was sold to Century in 1990 and at Bradley Pacific Aviation when we were the successful bidder at  the bankruptcy. I dealt with Lulu as a competitor for those fifteen years. My personal thoughts. and opinion...
