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!

Footnotes
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.

  5. When your business revenues hit the multiple six-figure+ range, business owners are typically faced with a new challenge in their business - creating new growth. Most business owners hire an Online Business Manager when they've hit the ceiling, feel frustrated, are stuck, and simply cannot grow the business anymore by being the only one in charge of everything! They realize that they must step out of being the one that is "DOING" making space to fully step into a leadership role in order to grow to 7-figures and beyond. Digital Booths of Royal Capital

  6. So you started your own business. You've seen a hole in the market or come up with a brilliant new idea. You've got things underway and maybe even started to make a bit of money. Emergency Locksmith Naples

  7. Your business operations keep your company running and generating revenue, so they're necessary. But you don't need to be the one who manages them. If you have a multiple 6-figure+ business and find yourself creating and maintaining systems, establishing guidelines and deadlines for your team, or handling product and service delivery, you're stuck in the "DOING" of the business.
