I know Sweets used to have a brochure for Birdair products, may still, I
just don't have a current copy (who does?).

With a web browser you can point to They seem to have a
good deal of information there.

My experience is limited with this company other than to know that Horst
Berger (sp?) of Geiger-Berger / NY was somehow involved. I had an early
interest in inflatable structures and arranged a SEAONC speaker (David
Geiger) for a very interesting meeting years ago.... (Note: this is
years ago spoken by a baby boomer BTW... not yeeeeeaaaarrrrs ago!)
