At the time of this excursion
there were only three Rotorway ships in our Sierra Rotorcraft Club
that were able to make the trip. It was Labor Day Weekend of 1994
and Steve Lewis was the only club member who had the new Exec 90
pictured in the photo to the left.
In the above photo Steve's ship is on Helipad 1 at his home. It
is an interesting takeoff. I have made it a number of times while
I was helping Steve with his flight training. Steve lives on the
ridge overlooking the Napa Valley wine country seen in the distance.
It is rugged but his well-built Exec 90 has given him excellent
service with over 400 hours on it to date.
This is where Steve launched from to meet up with us at the Petaluma
