on December 11, 1816, became the 19th state
admitted to the Union. The state is known
nationally for its strong presence in
professional sport franchises, being the home of
the Indianapolis Colts and the Indiana Pacers.
It is also the state where the Indianapolis 500
motorsports race is held, which is credited as
the longest single-day sports event in the
world. If you arrive in Indiana and suddenly get
the title of a "Hoosier," don't worry, that is the
name given to all residents of the state, and
oddly enough the name comes from unknown
origins! Some great
flights are to be had in this state, including
trips over Kankakee river, Lake Wawasee and the
Hoosier National State Forest. There are also
over 100 species of trees that are native to
this state, which makes the landscape even more
diverse and pleasing to the eye.
Pilots will love having a piece of property in
this peaceful state, and flying above the vast
amount of small towns and urban areas will add
to the feel of the land.
Relocating to homes in
cities such as Fort Wayne, Evansville, will give
you great spots to raise your own "Hoosier"
family. Consider relocating to Indiana, because
you will never be disappointed with your
decision to come to this state.
