Miss Violet Heinrlch of North Sea¬ man avenue, Baldwin, called at tbe ofllce of the Nassau Post a few days ago. This young lady has two Inter¬ esting brothers, but they do not mono- plize all the Interesting persons of that family by any means. Tbese two young men began some three years ago, to build areoplanes right at home. They worked hard, faithfully and intelligently and therefore suc¬ ceeded. There is a seventeen acre tract near their home and tbls gave them space to fly.
So Arthur and Albert Helnrich formed the Helnrich Areoplane Com¬ pany and began doing business. This business consisted of building the ma¬ chines, teaching pupils to operate them, giving e.vhibllion flights and do¬ ing a passenger businesB. The last consists of taking people up for a flight. The company builds and oper¬ ates monoplanes only.
Miss Voilei could hardly wait to tell these prosaic details. Her brother had taken her up for a flight and sbe had not recovered from the enthus¬ iasm yet. And she told the story bet¬ ter than any editor who has never left the earth for one minute, literally or spiritually in all his life.
"Yes Albert has promised me a flight for a long lime and Thursday afternoon he sa'd I might go. We went up over 1,200 feet and were In the air about twelve minutes.
"I was not conscious when the plane left ihe earth. I was not conscloua that we did leave It. The earth quiet¬ ly sank away from us and glided along to show u;; how beautiful it was. And it was beautiful. I never realized It before. It was like a great grand pic¬ ture only more real, a'he gardens, the flowers, the trees, the houses, the sea away in one direction, the sound in the other. Automobiles looke4 about as large as spiders, men, tiny little ants. A house caught flre and burned while we were in the air. I never really knew how grand a flre was before.
"We went around the fleld three limes, I never once wanted to coma down. I would take almost any risk to go again. 1 am going again.
"Oh, yes, we could see Freeport and all the villages around bere. Tbo reservoir looked like a bright quarter taid on an immense beautiful counter. There was another areoplane about 100 feet away. The young man oper¬ ating il had called al our house, eo I waved to him, but Albert said ho was in an air pocket and had no time for girls If we all get lo flying I don't suppose there would be a bit of time lo flirt. Bul they will get steadied ma¬ chines, al least I hope so. Well, Al¬ bert would come down. I really be¬ lieve I would be up there yet, but Al¬ bert was boss—for this time. And we landed as light as a sea gull on the water. In fact I did not know when we touched the earth.
"Ves, the boys are awfully busy, (.'aim days they take up passengers, $12.r.O for single trip, two for »25.00. And Its funny. The fat people all want to go up ^nd the lean little one* want to stay on the ground. It wasNH 50-horse power motor. And 50 bora- es all kicking together could certainly push the air some. It seemed as if It would blow my arm off when I put it out over the side of thc machine.
Oh, of course, the boys will com¬ pete lu that government exhlbitloQ and test that will come off aome time In the fall. They are building a ma¬ chine now that they hope tbe govern¬ ment will like well enough to buy. They also hope to get orders from for elgn countries. T^ey are awfully goo4 boys, straight and honest, and work hard. They w'on't Uke paeaengem uf when they think there is any rtak.
"Oh, I've enjoyed telling you aU aboat it. It waa great. When I flf again I wUl oom« and tell you aboH It"
