Gander is a very special place. I will tell the story of how a Hawaii company found itself in Newfoundland. Due to circumstances with Chris Hemmeter's direction, the FBO operations only lasted a couple of years but the friendships have lasted a life time.  In Hawaii we are known for our ALOHA and Gander you find the Newfie hospitality to be the warmest and friendliest on earth. The people that have always made a difference in each others lives...very special.

 

I will talk about the startup, the partnership with Air Routing International, and the sale to Century Aviation.

Early on Hemmeter recognized that they needed to start business at the main terminal and transfer to Hangar 22 in the future. Hemmeter requested an open space in the International terminal  from Transport Canada. We designed and constructed office. lounge, kitchen  and restrooms in 90 days . I was amazed at the cooperation and professionalism of all in involved with this project.
