Old business card for Hayes Flying Service

Here's an old business card for Hayes Flying Service, which was located at R.D. 2, Box 74, 3609 Mayfair Road in Uniontown, Ohio. The service offered "airplane rides" and "local sightseeing tours."

The text on the back states:
Flights are being made on week-ends at Akron (M) Airport1, at Adm. Building.

For information or reservation for flights thru the week or week-ends, Call OX-9-3427 after 9 P.M. or Call Akron, Ohio ST-4-0374.
I haven't been able to come up with any additional information about this company's history. So, as always, feel free to add anything you know in the comments section below!

1. I'm not even 100% sure which airport this refers to. Could be Akron-Canton Regional Airport, Akron Fulton International Airport or some other now-defunct airport.


  1. I also find the use of the word "thru" interesting. I've used it for years, informally, but have seldom seen others using it. Grammar Girl suggests that spelling through as "thru" could be part of Teddy Roosevelt's simplified spelling campaign. Perhaps the pilot was a fan.

    I also love the fact that the phone exchange in the phone number is OX, a real word.

  2. Would you choose a pun-filled name for your business? Are puns effective in attracting consumers to your brand? We look at how puns can actually be beneficial clicking here your business and brand, and how it can build your consumer base through the power of humour!

  3. If you are a home owner then you should know the importance and benefits of home improvement. First let us define what is home improvement. Home improvement is the process of making changes into one's house and thus improving its level of comfort, aesthetics and safety. Home improvement is usually done by hiring professionals such as handymen and contractors but the home owner can do it personally if he or she knows what she is doing. CST Studio Suite 2020 SP1
