Lake Havasu City has a long heritage in aviation, dating back to the development of founding father Robert P. McCulloch’s J-2: an easy-to-fly hybrid combination of helicopter and airplane. McCullough's dream of “an airplane in every garage” never resonated with homeowners. But in the 1960s, his dream of building a great city was brought to life by offering free conventional flights to 37,000 prospective buyers of vacant lots in the new planned community, now home to over 56,000 residents and Arizona's London Bridge.
