Ryan Air has been one of our Lead Dog sponsors since the beginning. Boyuk and Lee have been some of Pete and the Team’s most supportive sponsors.
We just can’t thank these guys enough for our annual support and then today they went up above and beyond (Literally) what we could even imagine!
So Kaiser Race fans have been noticing that Pete and the Team are a whole day ahead of his usual schedule. This is Great of course! But we had all purchased tickets to get to Nome tomorrow afternoon, AFTER our Team would have made it across the Finish Line! Hmmm… Alaska Airlines was totally booked on all flights. No Standbys either.
Rick Hanson got Lee on the phone and explained the situation. Next thing we know, Kaiser One was headed to Bethel to pick up the Kaiser Pit Crew. Apparently they had a flight headed to Nome from Anchorage, so a diversion was planned to take care of us.
“I feel like a Rock Star!” exclaimed Ron as we boarded the Ryan Air Pilatus PC12 for the flight to Nome. What a wonderful trip! Captain Boyuk Ryan started the engine and away we went for the quick hour and 15 minute flight to Nome.
What a great airplane! I highly recommend it!
Thank You again Ryan Air! Not only for the Great Sponsorship each year, but also this year for really helping us out!
Go Team Kaiser!
