Rural-King-HelicoptorRural King HelicoptorPOWDERLY, Ky.(6/23/14) — Did you ever wonder what that red helicopter was doing that lands in the soccer fields behind the Muhlenberg Board of Education?

The helicopter belongs to Rural King, a Rural King employee on the helicopter told SurfKY News Friday, June 20.

The helicopter transports Rural King executives at the regional manager level and above to visit the more than 70 Rural Kings in the area.

By using the helicopter it only takes 30 to 40 days to visit all of the stores, while if they had to drive to the stores it could take months to get to them all.
