Musty Putters (Booth No. 3738) is showcasing at NBAA‘12 its handcrafted wood putters and the ability to laser engrave on multiple locations on the golf club, so the coveted putters can do double duty as golf-related company-branded gifts. “Each of our putters is one of a kind, thanks to the variety of styles available and the unique grains found naturally in wood,” said David Musty, founder of the Signal Hill, Calif. company. “Additionally we are a green company, using environmentally sustainable materials, and our putters are made and assembled entirely in the United States.”

According to the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), airframe builders delivered 2,842 piston and turbine airplanes in the first nine months of this year-nearly 19 percent more than the 2,391 shipments made in the same period last year.
