American Buisness Airways at the Pure Michigan MLTA Conference

Friday, May 7th, 2010

Company pilot Tony Wright and I just returned from the Michigan Lodging and Tourism Association’s (MLTA) conference hosted by the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island.  All I can say is WOW!  We met some of the nicest people in the industry and everyone we met was truly interested in the industry and the State of Michigan.

Being born and raised in Michigan, I have a special love of the state and our resources.  That is one of the reasons I would love to do more scheduled charters “Up North” to places like Traverse City, Mackinac, Munising and Marquette.  I hope with everyone’s help — customers, Resorts and my partners, that we can put something together to get people spending money again in the state.  After traveling all over the country and the world, I find that Michigan has  a little bit of every thing you can see in the other states.  Along the Pictured Rocks I am reminded of the Pali coast in Kauai, In Copper Harbor I am reminded of the North East coast.  From the top of Mackinac Island, the multi-colored waters of the straits remind me of the Caribbean.

I also wanted to thank the MLTA for putting on such a great and informative conference and  opening it up to non-members.  I hope to join as a service member soon.  Every company that is in any way involved with the tourism industry should be a member,  without the MLTA funding the Pure Michigan campaign would have be cut to ineffective levels.
