Barry's love of small aircraft continues. In the spring of 2014 Barry was asked by the airport manager at the South River Airport (CPE6) to put up a business card. Barry had no hesitation to put up a piece of paper with his phone number on it. Within a few weeks Barry had a phone call from a floatplane owner at South River requesting Barry to perform the Annual Inspection on his airplane before spring thaw. Cool! Opportunity opened when Barry began mobile aircraft maintenance and service in 2014.
