If you really love to fly... love to think about, talk about, and learn about avaition, then you're a lot like me. And I think that makes us both AirPigz! When you 'pig out' on something, you take it in like crazy, you just can't get enough. That's what AirPigz is all about. A real passion for anything that gets us off the ground. You know- "hog wild about anything that flies!'
The pig concept seems to fit pretty well here, and I hope the AirPigz logo makes you feel like you are right there blasting thru the sky... eyes focused on where you are headed!
I've been blessed with a lifetime of interesting aviation experiences. From sailplanes to skydiving, from homebuilt aircraft to commercial airliners, from hot-air balloons to R/C models. I'm interested in it all!
I also like to think outside the box a little too, so you can expect a little different view sometimes and a bit of a wacky attitude that'll be a lot of fun! On this date, 12-9-09, AirPigz.com is re-launching (after having technical issues) exactly one year after it was originally launched, and I've still got loads of cool ideas for where this thing is going. We're back up and running and bringing some of the most interesting and enteraining aviation info around.
This is an extremely grass-roots project and your help in spreading the word to your friends in the aviation world is greatly appreciated. The more people we can get enjoying the AirPigz experience, the more we'll be able to do in bringing you one of the best aviaition websites in the world!
I'm also looking for groovy content spotters out there to pass along info on extremely cool things happening in the world of aviation. Please send me your tips to the email below.
And thanx for being part of AirPigz, where we Love To Fly!
Yep, that's me at age 11 in 1972 along with my dad Bob Clupper on the left and Ed Prose on the right... both retired as United Airlines 747 captains in the 80's.
The airplane is N6G, the first Breezy ever built from plans... built by Jack Gardiner in California in the 60's. My dad owned it for a couple of years until it got blown over (along with the Ford Tri-Motor NC8407, now operated by the EAA) in the big windstorm at Burlington, Wisconsin in 1973.
