Navion group forms is a new group for Navion enthusiasts who want to compare notes or plan social gatherings. The group was organized by Chris Gardner of Sierra Hotel Aero, the type holder for the Navion.

Sierra Hotel Aero plans to make archival documents available in an effort to promote the continued use, interest, and flying of the aircraft. They include old photographs, historical records, documents, parts lists, and products.

“We felt there was a need to have a forum that would be more closely affiliated with the type certificate holder to assure owners and enthusiasts accurate information to enhance support, preservation, and popularity of the Navion,” Gardner said. “Obviously owners do not need to belong to the type club to take advantage of Sierra Hotel Aero’s knowledge, but this club will give owners a larger voice and the ability to share knowledge pertaining to all Navion Aircraft.”

The Navion Aircraft Company is at South State Paul Municipal-Richard E. Fleming Field in South St. Paul, Minn.
