Why we’re excited about Summer

We’re going into our third summer since opening this business, and about this time every year, I get a bit antsy for two reasons: I’m excited, and I’m totally nervous. I’m excited for the possibility to have a record setting summer of flying but nervous that people don’t care anymore, or people won’t find us…

New year, new views.

Hi there, Corey Rust with Envi Adventures. 2017 was a great year.

But that year is over, and we’re into 2018…as I’m sure you already…

Unbelievably…it’s already fall and winter’s around the corner.

Hello again. Corey Rust here with Envi Adventures. Remember when you were a kid and time crawled. Especially when waiting for those exciting events like birthdays, Halloween or Christmas, school to get out. Then you grow up, you blink, and you completely miss it. Such is life.

Go do something different.

Hey, Corey Rust for Envi Adventures. Summer time. Vacations. Traveling. It’s what people look forward to for months and months. But when people plan a trip, they plan to do the cliche stuff. In Portland, everyone goes to VooDoo Doughnuts, PIttock Mansion, and Multnomah Falls. Nothing wrong with that. But did you know there are…

The summer solstice fast approaches.

Ahhh…summer. Corey Rust here for Envi Adventures. Summer’s a time for watermelon, homemade lemonade, and sweaty pits. It’s not all glamorous, yet we can’t get enough of the season. Especially in Oregon. If you’ve never experienced an Oregon summer, you’ve been missing out. Now, I know people in Wisconsin, or Nevada, or Thailand will all…

What is this anyway?

Corey Rust here for Envi Adventures. I often get asked why I started Envi Adventures? “Isn’t hard?” “Isn’t there a lot of rules?” “Do you think people are going to like the flights?” Yes. Yes. And…yes. Those are three good reasons why I am. I like the challenge. I like the development of an idea on paper and seeing it transform into something real after some hard work, sacrifice, and a bit of creativity. In aviation, there are a lot of rules. Most make good sense, some less, but all are there for safety. Sometimes I overhear conversations from other people involved in aviation that want to bend the rules in their favor and frankly, it really annoys me. Envi Adventures follows the rules and obeys the law so everyone stays safe. There is no other and certainly no better…
