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 few 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, the sale to Century Aviation.   I will be back to continue...
