Princeton Premier Has Selected Richard M Nierenberg for Inclusion in the 2007 - 2008 Princeton Premier Registry

Princeton, NJ, November 27, 2007 --( Princeton Premier has Selected Richard M Nierenberg for Inclusion in the 2007 - 2008 Princeton Premier Registry. Dick Nierenberg entered the world of aviation in the early '50s when he was in the U.S. Army, studying to become a Chinese interpreter in Monterey, CA. He found he had leisure time, so he started learning to fly at a local airport. Upon returning from Korea, Dick enrolled at Rutgers University. While at the university he met his wife, Naomi, who was a Douglass College student. Dick started working in the family furniture store. In 1960 he again pursued flight training in his leisure time at Hadley Airport, South Plainfield. (Now closed).

Dick purchased his first airplane, a Navion, with three other partners. They soon moved the plane to Kupper Airport, Hillsborough Township. In 1967 Dick was looking for a career change. At that time the Fixed Base Operator (FBO) at Kupper was Raritan Valley Air, Inc. which was in financial trouble. Dick and several partners invested money, with Dick as the principal investor and president. By this time he and Naomi had two sons, Jon and Ken, nine and seven years old, respectively. The reality of running an airport quickly set in. It was fun, but extremely challenging and time consuming. The FBO had a school, sales and service, fuel, tie-downs and t-hangars. Slowly Raritan Valley Air, Inc. grew and Dick began to understand the aviation industry. By the early '80s, Dick, who was now joined by Naomi and Ken, hit a wall as the twenty year lease was quickly coming to an end and renewal at Kupper was denied. By the mid-'80s the option of purchasing Princeton Airport arose. Ken was the motivating force behind the move. By 1985 Dick, Naomi, and Ken purchased Princeton and they ran the two airports for two years, with Ken remaining at Kupper, Dick running Princeton, and Naomi commuting between the two, running the flight school at both facilities. By April, 1987, the operation at Kupper was closed and the full efforts were devoted to Princeton.
