Dear Open Flight Customers,
Several months ago my wife took a job with with a large technology company in the greater Silicon Valley area. I stayed behind in Kansas City, getting the house ready to sell and allowing our daughter to complete her senior year of high school. This weekend (May 13) she graduates. The house goes on the market the next day. As soon as it sells, Falken Avionics will relocate to a new address in California.
I am excited about the opportunity this brings. The Bay Area has a vibrant general aviation community and is the undisputed technology hub for the entire planet. I expect that this move will accelerate a number of projects including the previously announced EFIS.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that selling a house with a working factory in the basement is a challenge. To help expedite the process (and to keep our realtor sane) we are pausing operations for two weeks, starting Monday, May 14. Orders received after May 14 will be processed / shipped the first week of June. During the sale period and subsequent move we will continue to provide technical support using our online trouble ticket system.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Moving is always a painful process, but I am looking forward to getting through the move, reuniting my family, discovering a new part of the country, and continuing to develop innovative solutions for the general aviation market.
P.S. – If your travels take you to northern California, please let me know. My airplane will be based at Reid-Hillview (KRHV) in San Jose.
