Now located in the main lobby of Sunwest Aviation is a statue by Michael Perks titled ‘The Origin of Flight’. The statue is a replica of Sunwest’s first lear jet in their fleet. Hundreds of different cut-outs of birds are welded together to create the final shape. The base represents the blades of a propeller that soars up into and expands out to become the jet itself. Including the base the statue is approximately 6ft tall x 4ft wide.
