Welcome to Bill's Blog

This is a blog about what is happening with Transportation

The Beginning of Travel by Air

The DC-3 propelled aviation as a viable means of travel.  Service was available to cities and towns across the nation.  Unlike today early air travel was convenient and uncomplicated.  

Early Train Travel

 Westward expansion was made possible by railroads.  Before the railroads people traveled by horse and covered wagon.  The iron horse allowed people to reach unsettled lands where new communities were created.  Feight and commodities were the primary interest of the railroads, but it took people to produce goods and commodities.  

Personal Air Travel

Personal travel by jet is possible for those who can afford it to almost anywhere in the country.   Businesses looking to expand consider the availability of a local airport essential.

About Us

Bill Hilsmeier has 20 years  experience in management, public relations, and advertising. While a  student at Western Kentucky University where he majored in econo​mics  and sociology he wrote copy for a local radio station.  His military  service gave him training in meteorology that led to his work in  atmospheric diffusion where he published a paper on  atmospheric dispersion.


As  an administrative officer with the Space Environment Laboratory in  Boulder, Colorado, he furthered his writing and management skills.  An  entrepreneur at heart he started an insurance agency in Longmont.  

In   1974  Bill  was   elected to  the Colorado State Legislature where he served three terms focusing on  small business concerns, transportation, energy conservation, air  pollution and education. He was chaiarman of the Transportation and  Energy Committee for four years.


Campaigning showed him

what is necessary to build an organization, identify issues, and communicate with the public.

During  this time he got his private pilot's license and over time a flight  instructor's certificate. "Flying has allowed me meet clients at their  home base and see their operation first hand."
Flying   also helped in marketing the Colorado Career Information System during  the three years he did marketing and training for the project.


Bill's  artistic talents led him to study color and design as well as  computerized drafting and design.  He inspires associates to look at the  client's needs, operation, and goals from a perspective of efficiency,  increased productivity and profitabiity..
