    Dave Beckett is listed on the Iditarod Air Force web page-Iditarodairforce.com-

    I'm not sure how familiar you are with Alaskan pilots but our most well know Helio pilot was Lowell Thomas Jr. He was a friend who flew the Mountain out of Talkeetna for many years. Of course his father was the famous radio commentator in the 30's, 40's and 50's.

    We knew Jim Harrower very well who flew a lot of Helio's up there for many years. I believe he sold Stoney River Lodge and retired, we have one of his Helio's for sale

    Lowell Thomas Jr
    He was also our Lt Gov for some time.

    Back when I had money I missed out on a couple Helio deals. Now that money is just a memory, I really wish I had a working helio.
