Third generation family-owned businesses are not very common these days, much less one that has been in business and prospered for 90 years. Cutter Aviation is one such business. The company was started by William P Cutter in 1928 when he flew into Albuquerque as a traveling barnstormer, met a girl and knew he had to stay. William P opened his business under the name Cutter Flying Service and the Cutter family business has been a leader in helping to grow, evolve and transform the Business and General Aviation industry throughout the past nine decades.
To commemorate their 90th Anniversary Cutter Aviation began a year-long celebration during the recent NBAA BACE in Las Vegas. Activities in the Cutter Aviation booth included kicking off the 90th Anniversary with a cake cutting and cupcakes for booth guests. Guests were also able to have their shoes polished to a high gloss by roaring 20’s flapper girls and the opportunity to have their picture taken with some of our industries best-known icons, Charles Lindberg and Amelia Earhart, in a new Ural vintage style sidecar motorcycle and receive a custom picture button commemorating their time with us. As part of the celebration, Cutter conducted a drawing on Wednesday afternoon an gave the Ural Sidecar Motorcycle to Shane A Hill whose name was drawn from all the entries received during BACE.
