Residential air parks, also known as “fly-in communities,” are specifically designed around private airports where residents each own and park their planes next to their homes, which are adjacent to runways.
In her novel, “The Aerie: Air Strip on Weeks Mountain,” Randell tells the fictional story of an air park community whose residents fall into a tailspin after a mysterious murder is committed within the park.
An in-depth look into the thoughts and actions of pilots, their wives and their families, Randell uses her cast of colorful characters to highlight the dynamics of tight-knit aviation communities and the camaraderie and conflicts that develop within them.
“I have a never-ending interest in people and their relationships with one another,” Randell said. “And life in an air park is filled with never-ending surprises.”
