Default Aerodyne still in business?

Just wondering if anyone has order fuel from Aerodyne lately? The freeflight web site seems to be closed.

THANKS.
Another diesel guy told me that Davis Diesel Development was selling that last of their fuel stores. I tried to contact them, but since the passing of Bob Davis, their website is down and their phone isn't accepting messages.
The same diesel guy told me to contact them via Message on Facebook, which I did several days ago - no response.
I will reach out to Aerodyne...

Aerodyne -- for diesel fuel:

Allen Heinrich
4184 South Roberts Road
Fort Mojave, AZ 86426-6330

email: [email protected]
phone: 928-219-4590
cell: 760-684-2030
*** info current as of 1-18-2020 ***

Talked to Al (at Eloy --- also picked up a quart of diesel fuel) and due to his health and his wife's he is not sure how much longer he will be mixing diesel fuel?
Al has resigned as "President" of SAM (Society of Ancient Modelers) because of the health reasons above.

I talked to Al about the different places that I use to purchase diesel fuel from. Tower Hobbies, Red Max Fuels, Dr. Diesel, and him.
Now it is just "Al" (maybe not much longer?)
Looks like we'll have to start making our own fuel in a few years?

Does anyone know where the folks who used to mix diesel in the us got ingredients? Surely they didn't drain cans of starter fluid for ether. Or maybe they did...

I don't know how they got the ether, but the caster oil you can purchase from Sig Mfg. in Iowa.
As for the kerosene you can get that anywhere they have kerosene heaters for sale in the gallon cans.
So, we are left to drain the cans of John Deere starting fluid for the ether.

Default 55 gallon drum of ether

Talked to Allen Heinrich where he gets his ether from? He said that he has a 55 gallon drum of ether in the shed to mix fuel with.
When that is gone, he'll be out of mixing anymore diesel fuel.
He has had it before 9-11. And is wondering when the feds are going to stop by and ask him what's that for?
