Our namesake comes from the first Two Letters of our Founder’s first and last name: Richard Co
Our very first flight was to a hospital in Tuscan Arizona and the rest is history!
We once made a special flight to Providence Rhode Island to ensure the patient had access to the care they required.
Really no way to tell… a BUNCH, but we like to think it’s an important part of who we are and where we’ve been. Food, especially pizza, brings people together!
On the dash of each of our Twin Cessnas sit Beanie Baby brothers, Blizzard and Freckles, a tradition started by Richard’s Daughter many years ago.
His very first trip was to Austin Tx.
We crunched the numbers, and to the best of our knowledge, we have flown 5,778 medical flights (many more as you are reading this).
Through the years, good friends and great caregivers have come and gone, but though it all, Doug Adcock and Richard Coon have remained friends, partners and Rico Legends! Here’s to many years to come!
