After 26 years of being the owners of Top Flight Recovery Miki and Gary have sold the company. We wish to thank all our customers and dealers we have had from all over the world. If not for TFR we would have not met so many nice people. Miki and I feel we have turned over TFR to a very nice and enthusiastic couple, Preston & Sarah Nobile.

Thanks for the great parachutes, and thanks to Preston + Sarah for keeping it alive.

Congrats Gary and Miki on 26 years! I'm thrilled to have had the pleasure of flying your handiwork for 20+ of those years! You'll be missed, but the sale couldn't have been to a better couple!
