We also provide various items of interest to pilots and the general public.


"I remember when.....

An offer of pictures from Terry Haug prompted creation of this page

Terry now lives in Lake Lotawana, MO, but back in the 1970-1975 time period, Terry worked part-time for Bill, doing things like stripping paint from airplanes in return for flying time.

Here's the first of, we hope, a number of photos from that era:

Bill Aronson & Sam Ramsey

Sam Ramsey and Bill Aronson,  circa 1985, in the Skypark "Sales Office"

Terry offered the following comments with the picture:

 "I flew but a few times with Bill, but I have never flown with a smoother pilot at the controls.  He was simply magic.

 George Green was the full time mechanic during the time I worked there.  Great memories for me.  We assembled a kit sailplane (Laister LP-49, N45L) in the building just south of the large hanger in the east half.  Bill's father, Ted Aronson, worked on his Taylorcraft in the west half.   There was second similar  building on the south of our hangar. That building in the pic was converted to a sales location for the new development.  Check out the posters hanging on the wall.   Both buildings were moved from Edwards AFB and transported to Rosamond."
