PAGE 8 BLACKFOOT VALLEY DISPATCH JULY 28, 2016 AIRPORT from pg. 1 "I started this out fully in- tending that if nothing else, I would pay for it all my- self," Cain said. "I'm happy to accept those [contribu- tions] - it lets me do more." Between ten and fifteen planes of varying makes and models and one he- licopter were on display. The Lincoln Council for the Arts, Blackfoot Pathways: Sculpture in the Wild and the Lincoln Senior Center all had information booths at the event, and represen- tatives of the Lincoln Vol- unteer Ambulance, Lincoln Volunteer Fire Department, and the Sheriff's Depart- A The Reach Air helicopter takes off from the airport.

They brought the he- licopter and a large air ambulance plane, and were available to answer ques- tions. "We came just to kind of show people what we have to offer and that we're avail- able," Bacon said. "We've "When I opened it up and develop an interest to the Community I had in aviation," he said.

Charlie Sherman was on hand with his 1958 Cessna 182. A regular at Airport events, Sherman hap- pily showed families the interior of the Cessna, one of two he owns. "This year was the best ever," he said of the picnic. "It was a family deal - everyone in Hncoln was invited." A retired Delta pilot, Sherman spends his summers at his home in Lincoln Gulch and has kept a hangar in Lincoln since 2004. Pri- or to purchasing, prop- erty he visited friends here who showed him theairport, which he" said influenced his decision to settle in Lincoln. Like Sherman, Jim and Debbie Rau- bet keep a hangar in Lincoln. They were happy to let local kids sit in the cockpit of their plane and answer their questions. Self- proclaimed "snowbirds," the Raubers commute back and forth between their home in Elk Trail Park and one in Ari- zona, often making the trip in their 1976 Cessna 182P Skylane. "We're very thrilled that we are able to have some- thing here," Debbie Rauber said of the airport. Cain said the night before the event three airplanes and a motor home full of pi- lots and their families came into town, utilizing Lincoln's hotels, RV hook ups and restaurants. "I always encourage all of my pilot friends to fly into the Lincoln airport, and many of them that have come to the barbecues over the years have said that Lincoln Airport is one of the nicest of its type in the state of Montana," Cain said. far as community airports, Lincoln is probably one of the tOp two in the state, and there's 400 of them. Because of its beauty and its loca- tion and everything, pilots love to come here. I'm trying to make the community understand that the airport is an asset in that when the pilots come here, if they know there are places to go in town to eat, to stay, to visit...that's going to benefit the businesses." Cain said he is working with the Chamber of Com- merce to install a bulletin board mapping Lincoln services and attractions at the airport. Other ideas he hopes to promote are in- formative brochures on site and a courtesy car for those who fly in. "The more that kind of thing gets developed, the more customers will come to Lincoln businesses. That was my whole purpose." He said he plans to con- tinue with the open house concept in the future. "I'm planning next year right now," he said.
