  5. Wow, about 19 years ago i stopped in and met Robert Ellefson who took my two young sons up in an ultralight plane. what an experience for them. One of them went on to become an F-18 mechanic in the United States Marines and the other is now in college. They both talk about that day 19 years ago up in the sky with robert. thanks and glad you are still in business.
