Flymall End of Summer Newsletter 2015

Monday, September 14th, 2015

Welcome to the Flymall.org/Kraemer Aviation end of summer newsletter.

For the team at Flymall.org it has been a busy summer. We sold a million dollar aircraft to one of our long time clients. And our own Pat Kraemer earned her flight instructor certificate.

Our wheels and wings business continues to grow along with our web site. On the wheels side we continue to show our collection of rare three wheel vehicles. Our 1912 AC Delivery is always a big hit at the shows usually bringing home a first place award. For more information on this vehicle and other vehicles in the collection visit our car show page.

Summer is ending and fall is just around the corner. There are still lots of outdoor activities to do before it gets too cold. Visit our events calendar to find fun for the entire family.

If you are in the market for a used aircraft we have just under 1 million dollars in inventory ranging from a bi-wing aircraft for under $10,000 up to a high performance Mooney for under $300,000.  Visit our used aircraft inventory page for all of our listings.

If you have a collector car or motorcycle to sell, give us a try. We have sold numerous collector vehicles for our clients on our wheels and wings site Flymall.org. We can also provide you with an appraisal on your vehicle before you sell or purchase. Visit our appraisal page for more info.

Hope to see you around the airport or at a local car/motorcycle show. To see where the Flymall team will be you can visit our appearance schedule here.

Until our October newsletter you can get daily updates and follow us on our FaceBook page here.
