The Gateway Youth Aeronautical Foundation's Bell 206B Jet Ranger (ex U.S. Army TH-67) made appearances at several community events this fall. The Foundation put the helicopter into service earlier this year to expand our mission to inspire youth interest in aviation at events away from Creve Coeur Airport. Here we illustrate some of the events attended by GYAF President Joe Steimann, Pilot Nick Hisserich and A&P Technician Faith Ortega.
