About the President:

   Hans van Ovost
has over 30 years fixed base operation experience and also is a seasoned Part 135 operator.
   He started at Fort Pierce, Florida municipal airport when it was just another non-towered airport without facilities.     
  Through Hans' efforts, it has become St. Lucie County International Airport (FPR) with paint, upholstery, avionics, and maintenance shops. 
   It is now a major business and transportation hub which has brought new businesses to the local area and increased the revenue of St. Lucie County.
   His hopes are to do the same for Polk County through it's only general aviation airport.

About the area:

   A two hour drive north of Atlanta lies the Tennessee Overhill Country.
This mystical, mysterious place is older than the Cherokee.
    Distinctively different, the moon shines over some of the United States best white water rivers, crystalline lakes, deeply wooded forests and some of the warmest, most colorful Americans still breathing.
    So, what's your pleasure? Whitewater rafting? Zip Line? Biking? Camping?  Hiking?  Fishing? Hunting?  Horse back riding? Train tours in the mountains?
