Instead of a power nap, Dale Sader uses powered flight to get energized at the end of the day. The longtime pilot and rural Lindsborg resident loves sharing the sky and the feeling of freedom found in his 2-seat ultralight aircraft. Over the years he has given the gift of flight to over 135 passengers, including his dog Sako, who now wears goggles and regularly straps in for a ride in the sky.
Sader finished his backyard airport dubbed Kentucky Creek Landing, complete with hanger and landing strip, back in 2010 and says flying gives him a sense of joy and relief. “As you fly you tend to leave things behind on the ground,” he said. That lift in your spirit is an experience he wishes for everyone on the ground.
