History of Wing's Unlimited


Wings Unlimited was created in 1974 by husband and wife team Hugh Forrest and Pat Hockett. Pat is now the President of Wings Unlimited, Inc. and holds an Airline Transport Pilot rating in airplane single and multi-engine land with commercial privileges in airplane single engine sea and glider. She also holds a flight instructor rating in instrument and glider with over 5000 hours of flight time. She has some experience in airport management and aircraft maintenance.

In 1976 Hugh and Pat moved Wings Unlimited, Inc. to Cedar Airpark (51K), where it is today. Cedar Airpark is located in Olathe, Kansas and is a beautiful grass runway 2440 ft. long. Hugh was a retired Captain with TWA and flew agriculture aviation and did aircraft repair while Pat did flight instructing. In 1979 they added banner towing to their business. They operated their banner tow business with their son Nathan and many friends and family working together for 24 years. When government regulations would not allow flights over major sporting events the decision was made to discontinue the banner business in 2003. In 2008 the opportunity to purchase the tow hook release rights from McFarlane Aviation became available. With their experience flying banners and instructing in gliders it seemed like a good fit. Today Wings Unlimited, Inc. is selling tow hook products to assist the aviation community in having replacement products for the aging Schweizer tow hooks.
