Bede News December 2014

Well you guys have me back again. . . more about that later . . . 

I would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays! 


NEWEST BD-4B COMPLETED AND FLYING:

One of the best highlight of this job is getting the call or email from one of our customers who just flew his BD-4 for the first time! One such fellow is from Canada, his name is Gord Hudson. I met him for the first time a couple of years ago at the Arlington Airshow. Just recently he completed his BD-4, and I have to say, it's a beauty! I have enclosed below a few photos and a link to the article the local newspaper wrote about him. Gord ~ on  behalf of the Bede Family we would like to congratulate you for completing your BD-4! Good Luck and have fun flying it!!!
