At a short briefing during the company's fourth annual training conference in San Marcos, Texas, Redbird's Darren Bien told a small group that thus far, customer response has been favorable, with positive comments on the airplanes being easier to fly and better trainers because pilots and instructors can focus on flying rather than manipulating engine controls.

Local veteran finally gets his turn for Honor Flight
The News-Messenger
After a five-year wait, a local Korean War veteran is taking an Honor Flight trip to see the war monuments in Washington, D.C. Lowell Mowry, of Fremont, Ohio, will leave today. Honor Flight provides free trips to the monuments for war veterans. For many years, the trips were available only to World War II vets. Because of their advancing age, an effort was made to take as many as possible to see the monument created in their honor. Mowry was in the U.S. Marines during the Korean War, but he never stepped foot in Korea. Instead, he was an aviation mechanic making flights across America and around the world.
