Harvey Bliszack along with a small group of aircraft owners and enthusiasts founded what is now called Flight 101 back in 1969. Prior to 1969, Harvey had spent a couple of years serving with Christian Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) as a pilot and aircraft mechanic in Africa. Upon returning to the U.S., Harvey still sought to be involved with aviation. Through the efforts of Harvey and nine other investors, the business rose from the ground in the form of the original 100’ x 100’ hangar and offices that are still here today. Over the years, the other investors moved on and Harvey bought their shares of the company until he became sole owner. During the 1970’s and 1980’s, the business provided maintenance for both hangar tenants as well as the public airport community.
