Robinette takes over shop at Buhl Municipal Airport

Buhl—It’s a profession chosen based on an early fascination with airplanes.

Rick Robinette, originally from Wendell, was raised on a farm near Gooding.

This blogpost falls into the category "Local Boy Makes Good," and by local, we mean Buhl, Idaho.

Richard Baptista, more fondly known here at Foothills Aviation as Ricky or little Ricky even if he is old enough to drive and go away to college, is working as part of an undergraduate research team on two NASA projects. In other words, he abandoned us for a more exciting life, and we couldn’t be more proud of him.

The story you are about to read is true, but it is long and may take some time to get through.

What's New at Foothills Aviation?

New Roomy Hangar


Our new hangar is mostly finished and waiting for a little paint before we move our offices. Ah, the space!  Six planes and room to spare, so far. Next on the to-build list, the offices, the records vault, and storage rooms. Then, we'll be ready to paint and move in, by November we hope. We'll let you know when we schedule the Hangar-Warming. Email us and let us know what best fits your schedule:  flyfoothills@gmail.com
