Alan and Dale started in their family barn in Baraboo, Wisconsin. VK-30: Development of their first aircraft (This was a kit plane that people could buy and build themselves) ST50: Developed for an Israeli company. Was a turbo prop (turbine engine driving a propeller) (Israviation ran out of money. ST50 never made production) Moves Had planned to go to Grand Forks, North Dakota Aviation industry had a history of failure – Grand Forks was nervous. Gary Doty (former Mayor, Duluth) – “If Grand Forks falls through, I want you in Duluth!” Moved to Duluth - Started Research & Development (R&D) for the SR series 1999 – First SR20 delivery – Walt Connely, White Bear Lake, Minnesota.
