A "chandelle" is an old flying maneuver term
that winery
co-founder founder Bruce Arnold
remembered hearing his father and early aviators
use. See below for a diagram.

The Arnold Family's story has been intertwined
with the history of aviation since 1911.

Check out the About Us section for pictures
and more information.

Cheers! Robert and Kathy Arnold

What's a Chandelle?

Chandelle: (shan-dell) an aviation term used to
describe a 180-degree change in direction and an
increase in altitude. This maneuver is a
classic test
of aircraft performance and pilot skill.

As in wine making,it requires a smooth touch
on the "stick and rudder."
World War I
French aviators perfected the maneuver and
described it as monter en chandelle, or
"to climb around a candle."

If you look at our winery logo, you will notice
that the "C" and the tiny airplane make a
hidden "chandelle" viewed from above.
