Lasting through the New Year, this festival will end with their “Lights Out” on Saturday, January 1, 2011. The festival is open every night (weather permitting) at 5pm and ends at 9pm (Sunday – Thursday) and 10pm (Friday & Saturday). Read more
Every year around this time, Dr. Fischer comes to the southwest to enjoy some flying. This year he has chosen to fly with Sawyer Aviation, bringing along Rainer, the son of his best friend. Originally from Germany and the UK, both men are enjoying the good weather. Dr. Fischer is quite familiar with the Sawyer Aviation Turbo 182 Skylane, as he has the same plane back home.
They will fly throughout the southwest, being sure to see all the highlights as they venture state to state, living the pilot’s dream. Their journey, so far, has taken them to Long Beach for the AOPA summit, Catalina, Santa Barbara, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Albuquerque and Las Cruces.
Follow them live on their journey!
Sawyer Aviation salutes all active and retired military and those who are no longer with us. We appreciate and remember your sacrifices.
Happy Veterans Day

Our footage covers the storm as it raged over the tarmac, obscuring our planes and 500 other aircraft caught unprotected.
The 70mph gusts whipped the palm trees about and the steady 50mph winds blew the hail almost horizontally. Read more
