About this Exploration:
When Marion J. Renner of Goodland made house calls, he took his doctor’s bag and his pilot’s license. From the 1930s through the 1960s, "The Flying Doctor” served the remote areas of northwest Kansas, sometimes flying 50 miles each day to check on a heart patient or up to 300 miles for an emergency at an isolated ranch. For many northwest Kansans in the mid-twentieth century, Dr. Renner’s flying house calls were often the difference between life and death. Standing at the terminal entrance is a non-working model of "America's First Patented Helicopter". See a full-size working replica at High Plains Museum. A historic hangar stands at the entrance to the Renner Field terminal's parking lot.
