Mary Fairbanks recently joined our chapter as a new member. Her day job is flying C90
King Airs out of MCC and MHR, but we were also pleasantly surprised to find that she has a company that provides FBO services at the Little River Airport (LLR) in Mendocino County. Little River is located just a stone’s throw from the rugged northern coastline south of Fort Bragg. The airport provides easy access to an otherwise remote area of the state but if you fly out there you will probably need a car to get around. Well that works out pretty well because her company, Air Galore, offers car rentals at both the Little River Airport and also at the nearby Boonville Airport. Little River is just 114 miles due west of Lincoln as the plane flies. Think about that in August when it’s 105 degrees at Lincoln and 70 degrees on the coast. Hop over to Little River and rent one of the cars made available by Air Galore. Mary has even offered a nice discount to EAA Chapter 1541 members, so take advantage of the opportunity the next time you are looking for a place to fly.
Air Galore also offers other aviation services, including ground and flight training, charter flights, and bike rentals. To reserve a car, call 707-972-4498 or email them.
And, you read it here first: Air Galore is going to offer a car rental at Pine Mountain Lake (E45) at Groveland, gateway to Yosemite National Park, beginning in May. It’s cooler there in August, too.
