RISK FACTORS                                                 7
     The loss of the Postal Serve as a customer
       could have a material adverse affect on our
       ability to remain operational.                        7
     Purchasers of shares in this offering may
       be buying shares at prices higher than the
       enterprise value and have trouble reselling
       the shares.                                           7
     Without additional money we will not be able
       to purchase the necessary planes to expand
       our business and future growth will be limited.       8
     We have a small fleet of older leased aircraft
       which can be costly to maintain and may adversely
       affect operations by lengthy down time.               8
     Increasing fuel costs may reduce profitability.         9
     We have high fixed costs which may drain
       resources if revenues were decreased.                 9
     New packaging dynamics may begin to reduce
       profitability by limiting the amount of freight,
       by weight, which can be carried.                      9
     We anticipate increasing costs which may reduce
       future profitability.                                10
     Government regulations limit the percentage of our
       shares that can be owned by non-U.S. Citizens
       thereby reducing the potential market
       and demand for our shares.                           11
     We are subject to extensive government regulation
       which are costly to comply with and delay
       our ability to respond to business opportunities.    11
     We have no employment agreements with our
       management and the loss of our CEO would
       have long term negative impact on our operations.    12

                              Prospectus Summary

The following is a summary of the information, financial statements and the
notes included in this Prospectus.



Alpine............Alpine Air Express, Inc. through its wholly owned
                  subsidiary Alpine Aviation, Inc. is a scheduled cargo air
                  carrier. Unless otherwise indicated, Alpine refers to both
                  Alpine Air Express, Inc. and Alpine Aviation, Inc.

                  Alpine has been in operation since 1972 and under the
                  current ownership and management since 1986.  We transport
                  packages, U.S. mail and other cargo in the western part of
                  the United States. Currently, we fly between 19 cities in
                  Arizona, California, Colorado, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico,
                  Texas, Utah and Washington.  We primarily deliver mail for
                  the U.S. Postal Service.  Alpine leases 18 Beech 99 aircraft
                  to carry cargo between cities. Our other planes are used for
                  charter and pilot training.  We have experienced increasing
                 revenue and currently have positive earnings and cash flow.



Contact
 Information......The corporate offices of Alpine are located at 3450 West
                  Mike Jense Parkway, Provo, Utah 84601, and our telephone
                  number is (801) 373-1508.

The Offering:

Securities
 Offered..........905,908 shares of Common Stock-All by Selling Stockholders.

Risk Factors......Alpine is a small regional cargo air carrier and services
                  one primary customer, the U.S. Postal Service. The loss of
                  this customer would be devastating to our business. We do
                  not have a public market for our securities and no support
                  from major brokerage houses. Accordingly, as set forth in
                  more detail, the securities offered involve a high degree of
                  risk and should not be purchased by investors who cannot
                  afford the loss of their entire investment. See Risk
                  Factors.

Common Stock
 Outstanding......11,000,000 shares-no additional shares will be issued by
                  Alpine in this offering.


<PAGE>
<PAGE> 7
                               Risk Factors

     The Common Stock for sale is a speculative investment and very risky.
You should especially consider these risk factors and the information in the
rest of this Prospectus.



The loss of the Postal Serve as a customer could have a material adverse
affect on our ability to remain operational.
-------------------------------------------



     Although Alpine has been profitable with increasing revenues, we receive
approximately 80% of our revenue from the United States Postal Service
("Postal Service").  The loss of the Postal Service as a customer would have a
long term, immediate and detrimental effect on Alpine's operations resulting
in the inability of Alpine to continue business as it is now configured.  This
potential loss is heightened since all air cargo contracts with the Postal
Service, including those of other carriers, are due to expire in September
2001.

     The Postal Service sets its contract terms in its Air Systems Contracts,
which generally last for two or more years and covers all air carriers.
Alpine is covered under the Air Systems Contract-Regional which covers air
carriers whose average flights are 500 miles or less.  Every air carrier that
meets the qualifications listed in the Air Systems Contract-Regional may ask
the Postal Service to carry mail. The contracts are awarded based on
performance, qualification and competitive pricing.  Alpine presently has an
excellent relationship with the Postal Service and has no reason to believe it
would stop providing Alpine mail for transporting.  This relationship could
change, however, if additional competitors entered Alpine's market,
particularly, if such competitors carry mail for the Postal Service as well
and have similar sized aircraft.



Purchasers of shares in this offering may be buying shares at prices higher
than the enterprise value and have trouble reselling the shares.
---------------------------------------------------------------



     Although this offering does not come within the normal definition of an
initial public offering, there are many similarities that place purchasers of
Shares offered pursuant to this Prospectus at particular risk.  There is
presently no public market for the Shares being offered.  The Shares sold
pursuant to this Prospectus will be the first shares available to the general
public.  This creates a situation where purchasers of the Shares of Alpine
offered in the Prospectus do not have the ability to see how the market views
the Shares over time.  Additionally, the price of the Shares may be affected
by the supply and demand principals far more than the price of securities
which have an active trading market and have been listed over a period of
time.  Purchasers will be buying from a relatively small number of
stockholders with the majority of Shares in the hands of only a few selling
stockholders. If larger stockholders do not want to sell some of their
position, prices could increase because of the demand being greater than
available supply of Shares.  This is often seen in initial public offerings
resulting in the prices beginning to settle as supply increases.  Unlike in
the initial public offering, however, there is no underwriter with expertise

<PAGE> 8

to value Alpine.  Here, the investor will make his or her own determination of
price without the benefit of an underwriter's assistance.



     Shares of Alpine's common stock also currently do not meet the current
NASDAQ listing requirements for the SmallCap(R) Market because we do not have
300 shareholders or an established bid price of $5.00.  Until Alpine is able
to satisfy NASDAQ's requirements for listing, trading of the Shares of Common
Stock will be conducted on the NASD's OTC Bulletin Board, established for
securities not meeting the NASDAQ SmallCap(R) Market listing requirements.
Generally, companies listed on the bulletin board do not have the liquidity
ability or investor following of NASDAQ companies.  Consequently, the
liquidity of Shares could be impaired.  This is not only in the number of
securities which could be bought and sold, but also potential delays in the
timing of transactions, reduction in security analysts' and the news media's
coverage of Alpine resulting in lower prices for Shares than might otherwise
be attained.





Without additional money we will not be able to purchase the necessary planes
to expand our business and future growth will be limited.
--------------------------------------------------------



    Alpine has reached the point at which additional aircraft, personnel and
facilities will be needed to continue stable growth, expand operations and
increase revenue.  Alpine's current funds will not support extensive expansion
due to the cost of planes.  The turbo prop planes we plan to buy cost
approximately $2,000,000 each and larger jets substantially more.  Our
expansion will be limited to one or two additional planes per year if we were
to rely solely on our own funds from operations.  Alpine's management has
followed a policy of maintaining as little debt as possible so we can handle
any downturns in business.  Therefore, management will likely seek money to
expand through the sale of additional Alpine securities.



     Presently, we intend to raise money during the first quarter of 2001.
This time frame will allow us to complete this current offering, preparing
year end financial statements and open several pending routes.  As Alpine has
never raised money before through the sale of securities, our ability to raise
equity capital is uncertain.  Most likely, the sale of additional securities
will dilute the percentage ownership of investors in this offering and may be
at prices which are less than investors in this offering are currently paying.



We have a small fleet of older leased aircraft which can be costly to maintain
and may adversely affect operations by lengthy down time.
--------------------------------------------------------



     We lease our planes on month to month contracts from CLB Corporation and
Mallette Family Limited Partnership, companies controlled by our CEO and
largest shareholder.  If CLB or Mallette Family Limited Partnership ever

<PAGE> 9

decided to sell the planes or to change the amount we pay for the planes, our
bottom line would severely be affected.  Many of the planes we use and those
optimal for the type of routes and cargo we carry have become difficult to
obtain.  Should we lose our leases, it would take months to be back in
operations.  In an effort to mitigate this risk, we have asked for and
received a written option to buy CLB which owns 14 of our planes.

Increasing fuel costs may reduce profitability.
-----------------------------------------------



     One of Alpine's principal cost components is fuel.  The cost and the
availability of fuel are subject to many economic and political factors
occurring throughout the world.  Alpine has no agreement with any fuel
supplier ensuring the availability of fuel; nor have we entered into any
hedging transactions to assure the price of fuel.  Alpine's contract with the
Postal Service provides for quarterly adjustments on fuel cost which the
Postal Service absorbs.  Between adjustments, Alpine must bear the cost of any
fuel increases.  On non Postal Service cargo, we are limited from increasing
our prices from competitive pressures and often absorb any fuel cost
increases.  The recent rise of fuel cost is evidence that our profitability
will be reduced by increased fuel cost.



We have high fixed costs which may drain resources if revenues were decreased.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------



     As is characteristic of the air cargo industry, Alpine is subject to a
high degree of operating leverage.  The revenues generated from a particular
flight vary directly with the quantity of cargo carried.  However, since fixed
costs comprise a high proportion of the operating costs of each flight, the
expenses of each flight do not vary proportionately with the amount of cargo
carried.  Accordingly, any sustained decrease in the amount of cargo carried
or increase in operating costs that is not offset by higher rates and
increased cargo could have a material adverse effect on Alpine's financial
condition and results of operations.



New packaging dynamics may begin to reduce profitability by limiting the
amount of freight, by weight, which can be carried.
---------------------------------------------------



     Although e-commerce has increased the amount of cargo being hauled by
airlines, the nature of this cargo has created problems.  The cargo industry,
particularly air freight, is based on a weight measurement to determine cost
to ship a package.  Unfortunately with the nature of the goods being ordered
over the internet, and the way in which the goods are packaged, weight
measurements do not coincide with the amount of space the packages are taking
up in a plane.  As a result many of these packages take up substantial volume,
yet are very light consisting mostly of packaging material.  This disparity in
size vs. weight can reduce the available cargo space and thus effect the
amount of money made per flight.   Some integrated carriers which have the
clout to demand changes have started changing the way customers are charged
for a package or refuse certain customer requests to carry their cargo.  Since
<PAGE> 10

we are tied to the Postal Service, we do not have the clout to change the
nature of billing an end client for the cost to haul a particular item.  Until
and unless, the Postal Service changes the way it charges customers, this will
be a growing problem.  There are currently no indications the Postal Service
will changes its pricing structure.  Although this size vs. weight issue has
not yet proven to be a drain on our profitability, as the increase in e-
commerce changes the nature of packages being carried, we expect the revenue
made per plane will decrease as less cargo in terms of weight can be carried
with large lighter package taking up available space.



We anticipate increasing costs which may reduce future profitability.
--------------------------------------------------------------------



     Management believes Alpine operates with lower personnel costs than many
established air cargo carriers, principally due to a relatively junior work
force and greater flexibility in the utilization of personnel.  There can be
no assurance that these advantages will continue to exist.  Several factors
indicate our personnel cost may increase.  Management anticipates Alpine's
personnel costs will increase as our work force gains seniority and salary
structure matures in response to profitability.  The pilots and mechanics at
other airlines, whether passenger or cargo based, are heavily unionized.
Presently, our employees are not unionized.  Unionization of our employees if
implemented, would restrict our flexibility in dealing with the employee
groups, resulting in a material increase in our labor costs.  If unionization
efforts are successful, we may be subjected to risks of work interruption or
stoppage and incur additional expenses associated with union representation of
our employees.  There is also a shortage of pilots in the marketplace.  Given
the size and nature of our business, we tend to be the first job for many
pilots after obtaining their commercial license and meeting our minimum flight
time requirements.  As these pilots gain experience, they are attracted to the
major airlines that hire our pilots after they reach certain levels of
experience.  Even with increasing salaries, most of these pilots would leave
for the long term security and job potential of being with a larger carrier.
Accordingly, finding qualified employees, particularly pilots, will continue
to be a problem for us and will keep training costs high.  We try to build our
projections anticipating certain attrition levels, but unforeseen factors will
often result in higher attrition.  Any increase in the rate of attrition
beyond our projections results in difficulty servicing our current contracts
and expanding.  In addition, as the size of the Company's workforce increases,
the cost of attrition may become relatively greater since it may become more
difficult for the Company to attract and train sufficient numbers of qualified
personnel.  This potential may cause our insurance rates to increase.  As an
air cargo company, we already have fairly high insurance rates resulting from
the potential damage and loss of like which a plane crash may cause.
Additionally, workers compensation rules are changing which is requiring we
pay more for our pilots who are subject to varying rules depending on which
state they may be in on a particular trip.

Government regulations limit the percentage of our shares that can  be owned
by non-U.S. citizens thereby reducing the potential market and demand for our
shares.
-------



     Pursuant to law and DOT regulation, Alpine must be effectively controlled
by United States citizens.  In this regard, Alpine's president and at least
two-thirds of our board of directors must be United States citizens and not
more than 25% of our voting stock can be owned by foreign nationals (although
subject to DOT approval the percentage of foreign economic ownership may be as
high as 49%).  Alpine's amended by-laws contain a provision designed to ensure
that the amount of voting stock beneficially owned by foreign nationals will
not exceed 25% of the total outstanding stock of Alpine.  Under such by-law
provision, (i) transfers of shares of Alpine to foreign nationals may not be
made if the transfer would result in the ownership of stock by foreign
nationals exceeding 25% of the total outstanding stock of Alpine and (ii) if
the stock of Alpine is in fact transferred to a foreign national in such
circumstances, the holder of such stock shall not be entitled to vote or to
have any other rights except the right to transfer the stock to a citizen of
the United States.  Although we have adopted procedures to ensure that no more
than 25% of our voting stock will be owned by foreign nationals and will make
every effort to ensure that a foreign national will not forfeit any of his or
her operating rights by virtue of foreign ownership, there can be no assurance
that foreign ownership will not exceed such 25% threshold.  The limitation on
foreign investment may also affect our stock price by reducing potential
buyers.



We are subject to extensive government regulation which are costly to comply
with and delay our ability to respond to business opportunities.
----------------------------------------------------------------



     The Airline Deregulation Act of 1978, as amended, eliminated most
domestic economic regulation of passenger and freight transportation. However,
the Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
still exercise certain regulatory authority over air carriers.   The DOT
primarily regulates passenger airlines and we have little dealings with them.

     The FAA regulates flying operations, including establishing personnel,
aircraft and security standards.  Many of these same requirements are also set
forth in our contract with the Postal Service.  As part of that oversight, the
FAA has implemented a number of requirements that Alpine must incorporate into
our business.  These matters relate to, among other things, inspection and
maintenance of aircraft, pilot training, and supervision.  Alpine must prove
to the FAA that it complies with Part 135 and other regulations before we can
begin operations.  Noise restrictions exist at many airports.  Alpine's
current aircraft comply with these restrictions if operated correctly.

     Alpine is currently licensed as a carrier under Part 135 of the FAA
Regulations, but intends as soon as practicable to obtain operating authority
under Part 121 of those regulations.  Part 121 operating authority would
permit Alpine to operate a larger and more efficient class of aircraft, such
as the Boeing 727.  Obtaining a Part 121 authority is a lengthy and expensive

<PAGE> 12

process, and is by no means assured.

     Our future results may vary based upon any actions which the governmental
agencies with jurisdiction over our operations may take.  These include the
granting and timing of certain governmental approvals, restrictions on
competitive practices, the adoption of regulations impacting maintenance
standards, and the adoption of more restrictive locally-imposed noise
restrictions.



We have no employment agreements with our management and the loss of our CEO
would have long term negative impact on our operations.
------------------------------------------------------



     Management, specifically our CEO, Eugene Mallette, owns 85% of the
outstanding shares of Common Stock. Current management will be able to elect
all the board of directors and otherwise control Alpine and its operations.
Mr. Mallette also is the primary contact person with the Postal Service and
owns, through various entities all of the planes we use.

     Mr. Mallette's role is critical to the success of Alpine.  If something
were to happen to Mr. Mallette, it is foreseeable that Alpine would suffer
from a downturn in business until a suitable replacement could be found and
relationships established.  As a relatively small company offering one
product/service, our operations has been controlled by Mr. Mallette and Bill
Distefano our president.  Their responsibilities have been very distinct and
each possess different skill sets with Mr. Distefano over flight operations
and maintenance and Mr. Mallette over the marketing, strategic business
decisions and financial aspects of our business.  Additionally, Mr. Mallette
has been the primary contact person with the Postal Service and has developed
the industry relationships which will be key to our ability to expand.  This
industry knowledge and business relationships are not readily available in the
market place and only competitors would have management with similar levels of
experience.  Even these people may not have the proven capabilities to take an
unprofitable operation and make it profitable.  To replace Mr. Mallette would
be costly and time consuming.  We do have a key man insurance policy on Mr.
Mallette, but it is relatively small and would not cover a long term down turn
in business from Mr. Mallette's loss.  As a small company, we have not
developed any succession plans at this time.




                        Forward-looking Statements.

     This Prospectus contains certain forward-looking statements regarding the
plans and objectives of management for future operations, including plans and
objectives relating to Alpine's future marketing efforts and the future
economic performance of Alpine.  The forward-looking statements and associated
risks set forth in this Prospectus include or relate to the ability of Alpine
to market our services at competitive prices, attract and retain trained
personnel, obtain required financing for our future operations, forecast
demand for our services, and maintain pricing and thereby maintain adequate
profit margins.




<PAGE> 13

     The forward-looking statements herein are based on current expectations
involving a number of risks and uncertainties.  Such forward-looking
statements are based on the assumptions described in the preceding paragraph.
The foregoing assumptions are based on judgments with respect to, among other
things, future economic, competitive and market conditions, and future
business decisions, which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately
and many of which are beyond Alpine's control.  Accordingly, although Alpine
believes the assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements are
reasonable, any such assumption could prove to be inaccurate and there can be
no assurance that the results contemplated in forward-looking statements will
be realized.  In addition, as disclosed elsewhere in the "Risk Factors"
section of this Prospectus, there are a number of other risks inherent in
Alpine's business and operations which could cause Alpine's operating results
to vary markedly and adversely from prior results or the results contemplated
by the forward-looking statements.  Increases in maintenance, fuel or labor
costs, general and administrative expenses or the occurrence of extraordinary
events could cause actual results to vary materially from the results
contemplated by the forward-looking statements.  Management decisions,
including budgeting, are subjective in many respects.  Periodic revisions must
be made to reflect actual conditions and business developments; the impact of
which may cause Alpine to alter our marketing, capital investment and other
expenditures, which may also materially adversely affect Alpine's results of
operations.  In light of significant uncertainties inherent in the
forward-looking information included in this Prospectus, the inclusion of such
information should not be regarded as a representation by Alpine or any other
person that Alpine's objectives or plans will be achieved.



                                Use of Proceeds

     All shares of common stock being offered by this prospectus are being
sold by Selling Stockholders.  No proceeds will be received by Alpine.



                                Dividend Policy

     Alpine Air, prior to its merger with Riverside, paid $1,000,000 in
dividends for the 1999 fiscal year.  This was a one time dividend and we do
not intend to continue such a practice in the near future.  Alpine currently
intends to retain any earnings for use in its business, and therefore does not
anticipate paying cash dividends in the foreseeable future.

                         Market Price Of Common Stock



     Prior to this Offering, there has been no public market for the Alpine's
Common Stock and there can be no assurance that a significant public market
for the Common Stock will develop or be sustained after the Offering.  Alpine
will seek a market maker to apply to have Alpine's Common Stock included for
quotation on the NASD's Electronic Bulletin Board on the effectiveness of
Alpine's registration statement, under the proposed symbol "ALPN."  There can
be no assurance that the market maker's activities will be continued, or that
an active trading market for the Common Stock will be developed or maintained.
The future market price of the Common Stock may be highly volatile.  There is
no public market for Alpine's stock.  Alpine is registering 905,908 shares
which will be the only shares able to be sold to the public.  The remaining
10,094,092 shares will be eligible to be sold under Rule 144 in June 2001. The

<PAGE> 14

Company's common stock has never been traded.  As of August 15, 2000, there
were approximately 111 record holders of Company common stock.



                                  Business

Background
----------
     Alpine Aviation, Inc. was organized on October 3, 1975, in the state of
Utah.  Alpine Aviation has been operated by the same management since 1986. On
June 12, 2000, Alpine Aviation entered into an Agreement and Plan of
Reorganization with Riverside Ventures, Inc. pursuant to which Riverside
Ventures, Inc. acquired all of the outstanding shares of Alpine Aviation in
exchange for 9,895,000 shares of Riverside common stock making Alpine Aviation
a wholly owned subsidiary of Riverside.  The 1,000,000 shares of Riverside
outstanding prior to the acquisition were unaffected.  Riverside changed its
name to Alpine Air Express, Inc.  Collectively, we refer to the combined
entity of Alpine Air Express and Alpine Aviation as "Alpine."



     Riverside was formed in April 1994.  Riverside has had no business
operations since its formation and has been actively looking for a business
with which to merge or acquire in an effort to create an operation that would
provide value to its shareholders.



     Alpine is an air cargo operator, transporting mail packages and other
time-sensitive cargo between 19 cities in the western portion of the United
States.  Alpine began its operations in the 1970's with the intent of being a
regional charter and cargo carrier.  After present management acquired control
in 1986, Alpine began to focus less on the charter or passenger services and
more on the cargo aspects of the airline industry.  Throughout most of the
1990's, Alpine has focused more and more on hauling mail for the Postal
Service because of their favorable contracts, routes and payment practices.
As a result of this focus, approximately 80% of Alpine's revenues now come
from the Postal Service.

Industry overview
-----------------
     The package delivery or cargo business has evolved rapidly over the last
two decades, driven by the integration of world markets, the rationalization
of corporate supply chains and the implementation of enterprise software and
internet-based information technology solutions. The ability to provide
time-definite delivery options and transfer information increasingly
determines success. Customer demands for real-time information processing and
worldwide distribution and logistics capabilities favor larger companies with
integrated services.

     Customers increasingly focus on the timing and predictability of
deliveries rather than the mode of transportation. As customers re-engineer
the total distribution process, which includes order processing,
administration, warehousing, transportation and inventory management, they are
attempting to reduce the most expensive and fastest growing component
inventory carrying costs. Time-definite transportation, which is no longer
limited to air express, has become a critical part of just-in-time inventory
management and improving overall distribution efficiency.


<PAGE> 15



     Technology advances have made it easier for companies to analyze and
compare distribution options.  As a result of these changes, individual
shipments are generally smaller but more frequent and a greater proportion of
products is being delivered directly to end-users, particularly as e-commerce
takes hold. Customers expect high performance levels and broad product
offerings as they seek to optimize supply chain solutions.



    There has been dramatic growth in the utilization of e-commerce by both
consumers and businesses for the transfer of goods. Consumers who use the
internet for home shopping and other services shop across borders and require
global delivery capabilities. According to Forrester Research, $80 billion in
goods were purchased globally over the internet in 1998, and this figure is
expected to reach over $3.2 trillion in 2003. Of this $80 billion, 80% to 85%
represented business-to-business sales, with the remainder representing
business-to-residential sales.

     Delivery of packages to a specific destination at a guaranteed time has
been the growth engine for the package delivery industry over the past decade.
Time-definite service has grown from 4% of the U.S. parcel delivery market in
1977 to over 60% today. Time-definite service has grown from just under 10
billion revenue ton miles in 1989 to over 14 billion revenue ton miles in
1997, for a compound annual growth rate of 4.3%, while charter, scheduled mail
and scheduled freight have remained relatively flat during that period.
Internationally, however, time-definite service represents only 6% of the
parcel delivery market, demonstrating the potential for substantial growth.



     The industry has become increasingly dominated by large integrated
carriers such as FedEx and UPS that provide seamless services, including
pick-up and delivery, shipment via air and/or road transport and customs
clearance. The pace of consolidation in the package delivery industry has
increased on a global scale.



     Industry participants are acquiring, merging with or forming alliances
with partners that can expand global reach, breadth of services or
technological capabilities in order to better enable those participants to
compete in a rapidly changing global environment. In particular,
government-run post offices have made several recent alliances with and
acquisitions of private-sector companies. Post offices, which still maintain
numerous advantages over private-sector companies, create significant
challenges for competitors worldwide.

     Statistics compiled by Boeing Aircraft Company indicated air cargo
traffic will nearly triple by 2017.  We feel with the growth in cargo and with
e-commerce taking hold, the need for companies like Alpine will only continue
to expand.  We offer the ability to deliver mail and cargo to smaller markets
without the associated capital cost.


Routes and Delivery
-------------------
     Alpine currently has 20 routes covering 19 western cities in 9 states.
Most routes are flown every day and some several times a day.  In fiscal 1999,

<PAGE> 16

Alpine transported 9,360 tons of cargo.  The largest component of Alpine's
cargo mix is U.S. mail, which accounted for approximately 80% of our fiscal
1999 revenue.  Alpine's delivery commitment on U.S. mail and most of the cargo
ranges from one to four hours.  Alpine has consistently garnered awards from
the U.S. Postal service for timeliness ranking in the top 10% of all contract
carriers for the Postal Service.

     Alpine services its routes with 18 aircraft which are smaller turbo-prop
planes.  Currently, the largest planes in our fleet are Beechcraft 99 which
hold 3,000 pounds of cargo.  The Postal Service delivers and picks up all
cargo we carry at the plane, unless separate arrangements have been made.  The
Post Office delivery and pick up plane side enables us to reduce our cost.

Expansion Strategy
------------------



     Our current routes could support additional and larger planes.  To meet
this need, we have located, and made an offer to purchase up to fifteen
Beechcraft 1900's along with their spare parts inventory.  The planes' broker
has accepted the offer, but formal contracts have not been completed.  The
Beechcraft 1900 is typically configured for 5,400 pounds and 611 cubic feet of
cargo capacity.  The Beechcraft 1900 is an all-weather aircraft powered by
twin, PT-6 Pratt Whitney turbo props.  It has a range of about 800 statute
miles and enjoys a sound reputation for safety.  Acquisition of the Beechcraft
1900 will increase the total cargo capacity of Alpine's aircraft from 54,000
pounds to 135,000 pounds per day, an increase of 150%.  With these aircraft,
Alpine will be able to bid on additional Postal Service routes and also try to
receive some of the contract hauling contracts from integrated carriers like
FedEx and Emery. The additional advantages of the Beechcraft 1900 include
allowing us to carry more freight on routes increasing our economies of scale
since it does not cost much more to operate than our current planes.

     The offer is for a purchase price of approximately two million dollars
($2,000,000) per plane payable at delivery.  Our offer was accepted in July
2000.  Presently, management has made the decision that Alpine will assign its
rights to purchase the first five planes to Eugene Mallette.  Mr. Mallette, in
turn, has agreed to purchase the planes and lease them back to Alpine on
similar terms as our other leases.  The decision was made to transfer the
purchase rights to Mr. Mallette because management did not want Alpine to take
on the debt associated with the planes, at this time.  These five planes will
be able to be placed in service during the next six months.  The other planes
will take longer to retrofit for cargo and we would not take delivery of them
until late 2001 and possible 2002.  We have agreed to loan Mr. Mallette
$1,000,000 towards the down payment on the planes.  As part of the terms of
this loan, Alpine will receive an irrevocable option to purchase the planes
from Mr. Mallette during the time the note remains unpaid.  The purchase price
will be the fair market value on the date the option is exercised.  Alpine is
hopeful that it will be able to sell our equity in the future to buy the
remaining ten planes.  If Alpine cannot sell any equity securities to purchase
the planes, we may be forced to borrow the money to purchase the planes.  Our
current revenue should allow us to borrow the money.  In the meantime, Alpine
is maintaining its flexibility in having the ability to use the planes without
the burdensome debt associated with the planes.



    Alpine is also seeking potential acquisitions in the western portion of
the United States which would add planes, additional contracts and additional

<PAGE> 17

maintenance facilities at a location which would be able to serve our routes.
Presently, Alpine does not have any agreements to acquire any other cargo
companies.  Alpine has talked to its competitors in our region to see if any
are interested in being acquired by Alpine.  So far, all talks are in the
early/development stages and no agreements are anticipated until Alpine is
finished with the registration of its securities and has its shares of Common
Stock listed for trading.  Even then, Alpine anticipates a potential seller
would want to wait a period of time to see how shares of Alpine's Common Stock
are valued by the marketplace.



Ancillary Services
------------------
     Our Provo, Utah base contains a fixed base operation.  Our fixed base
operation operates a flight school, sells aviation fuel, provides catering and
charter services, performs "outside" maintenance, and houses a training
facility for our captains and first officers.  Our operation has grown to the
point the fixed base operation has become a drain in terms of the time to
manage and in trying to handle third party needs in conjunction with our own
needs for maintenance and training facilities.  We have therefore entered into
an agreement to sell the fixed based operation and concentrate our resources,
which would stay with Alpine on our own maintenance and training needs.  The
sales agreement is for a sales price of $620,000 subject to certain lease
backs and offsets.  Included in the lease backs and offsets is a $25,000 lease
of property from purchaser to Alpine to use for an office and hangar through
January 31, 2001, an estimated $60,000 credit on inventory and fuel which will
be provided to Alpine, a $190,000 into plane fuel credit to Alpine, and
approximately $60,000 credit to Alpine against another lease held by purchaser
which will be transfer to alpine.  As a result of the various offsets and
credits, Alpine should receive approximately $285,000 in cash.



     We do not anticipate a significant change in earnings as a result of its
sale to a third party.  In recent years, our own expansion has resulted in
most of the fixed base operation being directed to the maintenance of our own
planes.



Employees
---------
     The Company has 64 full time employees including 7 in administration and
57 in flight operations which includes 19 pilots.  No employees belong to any
labor union or have employment contracts.

Facilities
----------


948:
     Alpine leases all of its real property.  We have sold our current
facilities and are leasing them back from the purchasers on a six months lease
while our new facilities are completed.  The lease back requires a payment of
$25,000 for the six months.  Presently, we estimate the new facilities will be
completed around February 2001 at a cost of up to $1,000,000.  Alpine's
current facilities are 41,496 square feet at the Provo Municipal Airport.
These facilities are not large enough to handle current and future needs.
Alpine has tentatively leased additional property at the airport under a
957:
<PAGE> 18

proposed lease that would expire in 2040.  We do not anticipate any problems
in complete the proposed lease.  Under the terms of the proposed lease Alpine
will pay a monthly lease rate of approximately $800.  Although the future
lease has not been completed, preliminary work has commenced on our new
facility.  The nature of the facilities we use will not require a lengthy
construction time.



     We also lease a 10,403 square foot hangar in Billings, Montana at a lease
rate of $14,980 per year.  This lease expires on October 31, 2002, if not
renewed by mutual consent.



     We carry extensive insurance coverage on all facilities as well as
planes.  Management believes our insurance coverage is adequate to cover any
damage to our facilities or planes and any resulting liabilities.


               Management Discussion And Analysis Of Operations

General
-------
     Since the mid 90's, Alpine has been profitable with consistent revenue.
Net profits have ranged from a low in 1995 of $96,981 on revenue of $7,050,026
to net profits of $1,756,484 in 1999 on revenue of $12,477,816.  We believe
this increase in revenue and more importantly net income is the result of
focusing on our primary customer, the Postal Service.  The focus on the Postal
Service comes after pursuing various avenues in the aviation industry.  We
have tried to be a charter carrier, passenger carrier and support integrated
cargo carriers.  We discovered in each of these avenues that a small carrier
such as Alpine has little negotiation capabilities and is at the discretion of
the larger carriers and customers as to terms of payment.  This placed
substantial burden on our ability to meet our own financial needs, much less
grow.  Although these other markets could be profitable, certain dynamics such
as size and steady cash flow had to be achieved before entering them.
After analyzing the various options available, we determined that until a
certain size was reached, we should focus on government contracts,
specifically the Postal Service.

     The Postal Service offered us the ability to have a consistent, reliable
source of revenue and immediate payments helping to solve cash flow problems
we previously faced.   The Postal Service also had need for a carrier who
could expand in the western portion of the United States and would meet
certain customer service goals such as on-time performance, which is critical
to the Postal Service.  By focusing our efforts to satisfy the needs of the
Postal Service, we have been able to build a strong relationship resulting in
our expansion to 20 Postal Service routes.

     While we will continue to focus on maintaining our Postal Service
contracts and feel confident we will be able to acquire additional Postal
Service routes, there is always the possibility that someone will enter our
market area and take some of these routes.  However, there is no indication,
at this time, that any other parties are trying to do this.   We believe our
relationship with the Postal Service is strong enough to maintain our current
relationship, at a minimum.

     Since we now have the established revenue flow from our Postal Service
routes, we would like to go after some of the cargo business we were not able

<PAGE> 19

to handle before, including providing carrier services to integrated carriers
such as FedEx and Emery.  Many of these integrated carriers use local airlines
to carry the integrated carriers cargo between smaller markets where the
economics do not make sense for them to devote manpower and planes.  These
routes, however, are profitable to a carrier with the right structure.  We
have proven the profitability of servicing these smaller markets through our
work with the Postal Service and now feel we can grow our business by offering
the same quality service to the integrated carriers, freight forwarding
companies and non-integrated domestic, international and regional cargo
companies.  We anticipate it will take time to develop material contracts with
integrated carriers and freight forwarders.  Most of these companies already
have existing relationships with air cargo companies.



     Presently, there are no real barriers, contractually or otherwise, to
prevent us from expanding service beyond the Postal Service to FedEx, Emergy
or any other carrier.  Some integrated carriers limit or prohibit other cargo
from being carried on one of their designated flights.  Alpine's discussions
with these carriers indicate a willingness to either waive this requirement
for our small markets or guarantee a certain payment per flight.  If a
guaranteed payment is offered, Alpine would simply add another flight to a
particular city to pick up the postal service mail.


Plan of Operation
-----------------
     We have been successful in steadily increasing revenue and net income.
Over the next year we anticipate a new Postal Service contract being announced
which, based on current discussions, should be on similar terms as the
existing contract.  We have no reason to believe we would not receive our
current routes and are hopeful that as the amount of mail continues to
increase we will be able to receive additional routes in the western portion
of the United States which can be serviced from our current facilities.

     We do intend to acquire, through lease or purchase, additional planes to
meet increasing demand and allow us to bid on additional work.  Management has
consistently maintained a policy of low debt ratios so we will not finance
these planes with heavy debt.  We anticipate using existing cash flow and
potentially selling equity in Alpine to make up any other sums needed.  A
third alternative and one we most likely will use in the short term, will be
to rely on the financing provided by Eugene Mallette who, through CLB, owns
the other planes we use.  Mr. Mallette has indicated a willingness to purchase
the planes and lease them back to Alpine on similar terms to the current CLB
agreements.  Mr. Mallette has stated he has the financing to purchase up to 15
additional planes.



    We are in the process of building new facilities at our Provo, Utah
headquarters.  These new facilities will serve as our corporate offices,
maintenance and training facilities.   We have sold the current facilities in
Provo, Utah.  The proceeds from this sale will help pay for the new facilities
as well as offset some lease and fuel expenses.  The cost of the new
facilities in excess of the proceeds received from the sale of the current
facilities will be paid from our current capital and ongoing revenue.  The
facilities will be at the Provo Airport and be built on grounds leased from
Provo City.  The lease will be for 40 years, and like our current lease be for
a fairly nominal monthly rent.

-------------------------------


October 31, 1999 and 1998
-------------------------



     In reviewing our financial position, we have focused on Alpine Aviation's
operations prior to the merger with Riverside.  We have treated the merger as
a "reverse acquisition" and we are changing year ends to October 31 to match
Alpine Aviation's.



     Financially, Alpine is experiencing its best times since inception.  For
the fiscal year ended October 31, 1999, we had record profits that left Alpine
with current assets of $4,432,199 compared with current liabilities of
$1,039,501 and little long term debt.  This represents an increase in current
assets of $1,512,804 from October 31, 1998, when current assets were
$2,919,395.  The largest increase from 1998 was in cash which increased to
$1,103,210.  The increase in cash was a result of higher net profits in 1999.
Accounts payable also decreased from $465,207 on October 31, 1998 to $194,322
on October 31, 1999, as a result of the increased revenue.

     With a working capital surplus of $3,392,698 we are positioned to
complete the building of our new facility in  Provo, Utah which we anticipate
costing around $1,000,000.  As a result of the sale of our fixed based
operation, we only anticipate having to expend approximately $600,000 out of
existing funds once we complete the sale of our existing facility.  We do not
anticipate any problems with liquidity in the upcoming year.  Revenues should
exceed the previous years, resulting in additional cash to fund operations and
expansion.



     The only expenditures anticipated besides the new facility are for
additional cargo aircraft.  Management anticipates following its existing
practice of not incurring large amounts of long term debt.  Accordingly, if
the planes cannot be financed out of existing revenue, management will seek
alternatives.  Hopefully, we will raise the necessary capital through the sale
of equity.  If not, Eugene Mallette has indicated a willingness, through other
entities he controls, to purchase the planes and lease them back to Alpine.
The lease terms would be similar to the ones currently being paid on our other
planes which are also leased from an entity controlled by Mr. Mallette.  We
believe these terms to be very favorable.



July 31, 2000
--------------
     As of July 31, 2000, our working capital surplus improved to $5,989,274,
with current assets of $6,923,353 and total current liabilities of
approximately $934,079.  We feel good about the $2,596,576 increase in working
capital since October 31, 1999, particularly since we paid $1,000,000 in
dividends during the quarter ended April 30, 2000.  We do not intend to pay
dividends in upcoming periods now that the ownership structure has changed.

<PAGE> 21

Future revenue will instead be focused on expanding operations.



     We believe the next quarter should produce similar results leaving us
with a strong financial position for the next twelve months.  Even with
anticipated expansion, the operations are producing enough cash flow that our
business should continue to remain profitable, as long as our Postal Service
routes continue.

Results of Operation
--------------------



October 31, 1999 and 1998
-------------------------

     Our last two fiscal years were our best years ever in terms of revenue
and net income.  Revenue for the fiscal year ended October 31, 1999, was
$12,477,816 which represented an increase of $2,848,325 or 30% over the
$9,629,491 in revenue for the same period in 1998. More importantly, net
income increased almost 211% to $1,756,484 for the fiscal year ended October
31, 1999, from $564,352 received in 1998.



     The increase in net income was the result of increased loads and expanded
route system resulting in better utilization of planes and pilots.  We
consider these results even better than expected given the high fuel cost we
had to pay in 1999 and continue to pay today.  As we are able to expand
routes, net income should continue to increase given our ratio of fixed cost
to variable cost.

     Our contract with the Postal Service more than made up for the higher
fuel cost as they awarded us expanded routes increasing from 12 routes in 1998
to 19 in 1999.  These increased routes allowed us to utilize our planes and
pilots more efficiently.  This additional revenue offset the increased
variable cost of fuel and maintenance.  We anticipate that fuel costs will
remain about the same for this year, somewhere near $1.65 per gallon on
average.

     One advantage we have over other carriers is the Postal Service contracts
have a fuel expense increase clause.  This clause automatically increases the
amount the Postal Service pays us when fuel costs increase, making adjustments
every quarter.  Accordingly, as fuel costs go up, we generally only experience
a quarter lag time before we begin to be paid at a higher rate.



     Operating expenses, exclusive of wages, from 1998 to 1999 have remained
fairly constant and we do not anticipate major changes.  Operating expenses
went from $8,627,002 in 1998 to $9,462,469 in 1999 but $524,267 of this
increase related to increase wages.  This increase in wages was seen in our
general and administrative expense which increased from $1,083,489 in 1998 to
$1,672,480 in 1999.

     Wage expense increased by $524,267 for a couple of reasons.  First, our
business expanded which required we hire additional pilots to fly the new
routes.  However, a major increase came from bonus to our employees and

<PAGE> 22

management.  To show our appreciation to our employees, we gave them part of a
"bonus" received from the Postal Service.  The bonus was for our on-time
performance being in the top 10% for all regional carriers.  This bonus was
$135,949 for 1999.  To show our appreciation for our employees making this
bonus possible, we passed along $66,200 of the bonus to the employees.
Unfortunately, the Postal Service will not be offering a performance bonus
until September 2001, at the earliest.  They have indicated other incentives
will be built into the new contract but at this time we do not know how these
new incentives of the contract will affect our revenue.  The other major
increase in wages related to bonuses to officers of $265,000.  In future
periods, we do not intend to pay large cash bonuses to officers but will be
setting up an option plan tied to more definitive management objectives.  This
change in bonus structure is being undertaken to reflect better our new
ownership structure from a company owned by two officers to a public company
structure.



     One factor we anticipate will change in upcoming years is the revenue
received from our fixed based operations.  We do not feel it makes long term
economic sense to continue to operate our fixed based operations for third
party use.  Last year, the fixed based operation contributed about $654,000 to
our revenue.  However, for the last nine months, the fixed based operation
operated at a loss.  Accordingly, we have decided to refocus our resources by
selling the fixed based operation.  We will transfer the personnel used in the
fixed based operation to maintenance of our own planes and to other
administrative needs.



July 31, 2000 and 1998
----------------------

     For the nine months ending July 31, 2000, operating revenue increased to
$12,662,788.  This was a $3,669,163 increase over the same period in 1999 when
revenue was $8,993,625.  More importantly, our operating income increased to
$3,207,840 for the nine months ended July 31, 2000, from $2,864,992 for the
nine months ending July 31, 1999.  Net income after taxes was $2,043,066 for
the nine months ended July 31, 2000, as compared with $1,817,583 for the nine
months ended July 31, 1999.

     One factor that reduced profits for the last nine months was the expenses
associated with the reorganization with Riverside.  Although only $150,000 in
cash was spent, the advisors and consultants hired by Alpine received shares
of Alpine which were valued at $1,430,250, based, in part, on prior business
evaluations received by Alpine.  Additionally $76,566 was also expenses as a
one time organizational expense associated with the reorganization with
Riverside.  This expense was a non-cash expense.  Without the reorganization
expenses, operating income before tax would have increased to $4,864,658 for
the nine months ended July 31, 2000.



     Management is pleased with these numbers and feels they show how well we
have been able to expand operations and maintain our expenses.  Except for
those variable costs related to the increase in operations, expenses remained
fairly constant from prior periods.  As expected flight operations,
maintenance and rental expenses increased as we added flights.  These
increases, however, were more than offset by the additional revenue generated.


<PAGE> 23

     As a result of management's efforts to maintain cost and expand
operations, our profit margin on operating income, excluding the one time
expense associated with the reorganization, increased to almost 40% from 31%
from the prior nine month period.  Management feels these profit margins are
reflective of future results if we are able to continue to expand operations.



    For the nine months ended July 31, 2000, general and administrative
expenses remained fairly constant with $650,403 in general and administrative
expenses for the nine months ended July 31, 2000, compared with $649,053 for
the nine months ended July 31, 1999.  Direct operating expenses increased as
expected with our expanded operation.  These expenses increased due to fuel
cost and the increased number of flights.  As a percentage of revenue,
however, operating expense was only 57.43% of revenue for the nine months
ended July 31, 2000, as opposed to 60.65% of revenue for the nine months ended
July 31, 1999.  This reduction in operating expense on a percentage of revenue
basis is the result of our fixed cost such as planes and facilities being
utilized over more routes.  As we branch out into different revenue sources
and reduce our dependency on the Postal Service, we would anticipate that
profit margins on the new business would not be as favorable, at first, as new
routes have to be developed, and additional planes and personnel added.



    We also will reduce some expenses completely in the future.  Flight
instruction and rentals which were $426,212 expense item will no longer be
incurred once we sell our fixed base facility.  This will also remove $283,256
in revenue from these items.  Management feels the reallocation of these
resources will be a positive effect to our operating profits.  Particularly
when considering the maintenance on the aircraft and the managerial time
devoted to these marginal revenue activities.

     At the fiscal year ends, Riverside sole officer, Jehu Hand, had received
no compensation.  The numbers provided are for Alpine Air, prior to the
merger, as they provide the relevant information for the combined entities
going forward.

     In the past, our bonuses to officers were based on some fixed percentage
of earnings and subjective factors reviewed by the board of directors.  Except
in the last two years, only Bill Distefano received any sizable amount of his
compensation as a bonus.  As our earnings have increased in the last few
years, Eugene Mallette has started taking a bonus based on advice from our
accountants.  His bonus has been structured by our accountants to reflect his
role as an officer of Alpine and his status as a major shareholder.  These
bonuses were also structured to minimize the overall tax affect to Alpine and
Mr. Mallette.  With our change in ownership structure, we intend to set up new
bonus plans which have a more definitive structure and is more heavily focused
on stock and options than cash.  As yet, no plan has been set as we review our
long term managerial human resource needs and our desire to start hiring new
management with an eye to the future succession needs of Alpine if something
were to happen to current management.  Other annual compensation consisted of
payments to 401(k) retirement accounts and health insurance reimbursements.

                             Certain Transactions

     This Prospectus offers shares of common stock of Alpine Air Express,
Inc., a Delaware corporation which was originally organized under the name
Riverside Ventures, Inc. by Jehu Hand, with minimal capitalization, to search
for and make an acquisition of an operating company.  Riverside issued
1,000,000 shares to Mr. Hand and other shareholders on organization on April
20, 1994.  On June 12, 2000, Riverside Ventures, Inc. entered into an
Agreement and Plan of Reorganization with Alpine Air, a Utah corporation
majority owned by Eugene R. Mallette.  Pursuant to the reorganization
agreement, Riverside acquired 100% of Alpine Air by exchanging 9,895,000 newly
issued Riverside shares for all of the shares of Alpine Air, and Riverside
changed its name to Alpine Air Express, Inc.  The terms of the reorganization
agreement, including the terms of the share exchange, were determined by arm's
length negotiation between Messrs. Mallette and Hand.  These individuals and
their companies respectively controlled by them had no relationship or
affiliation prior to this negotiation.



     Alpine leases all of its aircraft from CLB Corporation and Mallette
Family Limited Partnership which is owned by Mr. Mallette.  The terms of these
leases were approved by the independent directors of Alpine Air as fair and on
the same terms as could have been obtained from non-affiliated parties.
During the fiscal year ended October 31, 1999, Alpine paid $2,960,048 to CLB
in lease payments.  We have only recently started leasing planes from Mallette
Family Limited Partnership but they are on the same terms as the CLB lease.



     Alpine has acquired an option to purchase CLB for $17,000,000.  The
purchase price will be paid for with shares of Alpine's Common Stock. Solely
for purposes of the CLB transaction, Alpine's Common Stock will be valued at
$3.40 per share. The option is for a period of two years. The purchase price
was determined by the "blue book" value of the planes owned by CLB less any
debt still owed on the planes.  CLB has less than $840,000 in debt on its 24
planes.



    Alpine will enter into a $1,000,000 promissory note and irrevocable option
with Mallette Family, L.L.C.  The loan will be made to assist in the purchase
of Beechcraft 1900 planes that are going to be leased by Alpine from Mallette.
The note is for three years and at an interest rate of six and one half
percent.  The irrevocable option will give Alpine the right, during any period
the note remains outstanding, to purchase up to four planes being acquired by

<PAGE> 27

Mallette.  The purchase price of the planes will be the fair market value of
the planes on the date of purchase.  This transaction will be entered into to
provide a means for Alpine to have the use of 15 Beechcraft 1900 planes
without the related debt associated with the planes.  It is hoped that Alpine
will eventually obtain capital either from operations or the sale of equity
securities to buy the planes.  In the meantime, Mallette will be the owner of
the planes and responsible for any related debt.  The note was entered into on
favorable terms to facilitate the purchase of the planes.



                               Selling Stockholders

     The shares of common stock of Alpine offered by the Selling Stockholders
will be offered at market prices, as reflected on the National Association of
Securities Dealers Electronic Bulletin Board, or on the NASDAQ Small Cap
Market if the Common Stock is then traded on NASDAQ.  It is anticipated that
registered broker-dealers will be allowed the commissions which are usual and
customary in open market transactions.  There are no other arrangements or
understandings with respect to the distribution of the Common Stock.  Except
as noted, the Selling Stockholders do not own any Common Stock except as
registered hereby and will own no shares after the completion of the offering.
The relationship, if any, between Alpine and any Selling Stockholder is set
forth below.

     SCS, Inc. is controlled by Karl Smith who has been acting as a consultant
to Alpine in our merger with Riverside, Inc.  SCS, Inc. has an additional
319,925 shares not being registered.  SCS has indicated it has an agreement to
transfer an additional 50,000 shares to David Nelson and up to 125,000 shares
to Mark Anderson.  SCS agreement to transfer the shares requires future
consulting services be provided to SCS and its clients by Messrs. Nelson and
Anderson over the next year.

     Mark Anderson has been acting as a consultant to Alpine and SCS in
regards to our merger with Riverside, Inc., dealings with the Postal Service
and the acquisition of additional planes.

     There were 104 shareholders of Riverside prior to its merger with Alpine
Air.  The miscellaneous shareholders represents the small shareholders of
Riverside along with business consultants, accountants and attorneys who
received shares in Alpine for consulting, accounting and legal services.
There is presently 114 shareholders of Alpine.  None of these stockholders has
1% or more of the shares of Alpine except as specifically noted in the above
list.

<PAGE> 29

     There are approximately 179 shareholders receiving shares from Mr.
Mallette.  All of these people are friends, family and business associates of
Mr. Mallette and are receiving between 100 and 5,000 shares.  These gifts are
for benevolent purposes only.  Alpine is registering only the distribution of
the shares to these individuals and trust and not the shares subsequent resale
into the public markets.  Alpine will deem all the shares restricted in the
hands of the new holders.


                             Plan Of Distribution

     Alpine has applied to have its shares of common stock registered on the
NASD's Electronic Bulletin Board.  Alpine anticipates once the shares are
trading on the Electronic Bulletin Board the Selling Stockholders will sell
their shares directly into any market created. The prices the Selling
Stockholders will receive will be determined by the market conditions. The
Shares may be sold by the Selling Stockholders, as the case may be, from time
to time, in one or more transactions. Alpine does not intend to enter into any
arrangements with any securities dealers concerning solicitation of offers to
purchase the shares.

     Commissions and discounts paid in connection with the sale of the shares
by the Selling Stockholders will be determined through negotiations between
them and the broker-dealers through or to which the securities are to be sold
and may vary, depending on the broker-dealers fee schedule, the size of the
transaction and other factors. The separate costs of the Selling Stockholders
will be borne by them. The Selling Stockholders and any broker-broker dealer
or agent that participates with the Selling Stockholders in the sale of the
shares by them may be deemed an "underwriter" within the meaning of the
Securities Act, and any commissions or discounts received by them and any
profits on the resale of shares purchased by them may be deemed to be
underwriting commissions under the Securities Act.

    Alpine will bear all costs of the offering in registering the shares but
will bear no selling expense cost. Alpine will use its best efforts to update
the registration statement and maintain its effectiveness for 120 days.

                            Description Of Securities

Common Stock
------------
     Alpine's Articles of Incorporation authorizes the issuance of 20,000,000
shares of common stock, $.001 par value per share, of which 11,000,000 shares
were outstanding as of October 27, 2000. Alpine has no plans to sell
additional shares of common stock at this time, but has the right to do so
without shareholder approval.  Holders of shares of common stock are entitled
to one vote per share on all matters to be voted on by the stockholders.
Holders of common stock have no cumulative voting rights. Holders of shares of
common stock are entitled to share ratably in dividends, if any, as may be
declared, from time to time by the Board of Directors in its discretion, from
funds legally available therefor. In the event of a liquidation, dissolution
or winding up of Alpine, the holders of shares of common stock are entitled to
share pro rata all assets remaining after payment in full of all liabilities
and the liquidation preference to holders of preferred stock, if any. Holders
of common stock have no preemptive rights to purchase common stock.  There are
no conversion rights or redemption or sinking fund provisions with respect to
the common stock. All of the outstanding shares of Common Stock are, and the
shares of common stock will be, when issued and delivered, fully paid and non-
assessable.





<PAGE> 30

Preferred Stock
---------------
     Alpine's Articles of Incorporation authorize the issuance of 1,000,000
shares of preferred stock, $.001 par value, of which no shares of preferred
stock are outstanding.

      Alpine's Board of Directors has authority, without action by the
shareholders, to issue all or any portion of the authorized but unissued
preferred stock in one or more series and to determine the voting rights,
preferences as to dividends and liquidation, conversion rights, and other
rights of such series. Alpine considers it desirable to have Preferred Stock
available to provide increased flexibility in structuring possible future
acquisitions and financing and in meeting corporate needs which may arise. If
opportunities arise that would make desirable the issuance of preferred stock
through either public offering or private placements, the provisions for
preferred stock in Alpine's Articles of Incorporation would avoid the possible
delay and expense of a shareholder's meeting, except as may be required by law
or regulatory authorities. Issuance of the Preferred Stock could result,
however, in a series of securities outstanding that will have certain
preferences with respect to dividends and liquidation over the common stock
which would result in dilution of the income per share and net book value of
the common stock. Issuance of additional Common Stock pursuant to any
conversion right which may be attached to the terms of any series of Preferred
Stock may also result in dilution of the net income per share and the net book
value of the common stock. The specific terms of any series of preferred stock
will depend primarily on market conditions, terms of a proposed acquisition or
financing, and other factors existing at the time of issuance. Therefore, it
is not possible at this time to determine in what respect a particular series
of Preferred Stock will be superior to Alpine's common stock or any other
series of preferred stock which Alpine may issue. The Board of Directors may
issue additional Preferred Stock in future financing, but has no current plans
to do so at this time.

     The issuance of preferred stock could have the effect of making it more
difficult for a third party to acquire a majority of the outstanding voting
stock of Alpine.

     Alpine intends to furnish holders of its common stock annual reports
containing audited financial statements and to make public quarterly reports
containing unaudited financial information.

Transfer Agent
--------------
     The transfer agent for the Common Stock is Colonial Stock Transfer, 455
East 400 South, Suite 100, Salt Lake City, Utah 84111, and its telephone
number is (801) 355-5740.

                                  Legal Matters

     The legality of the Shares offered hereby will be passed upon for Alpine
by Max A. Hansen & Associates, P.C.

                                     Experts

     The audited financial statements included in this Prospectus of Alpine
Aviation, Inc. as of October 31, 1999 and 1998 and of Riverside Ventures, Inc.
as of October 31, 1999, and 1998, have been audited by Squire & Company, PC,
independent certified public accountants, to the extent and for the periods
set forth in their report thereon and are included in reliance upon such
report given upon the authority of such firm as experts in accounting and
auditing.



<PAGE> 31

                            Interest Of Named Experts

     The legality of the Shares is being passed on by Max Hansen who is a
director of Alpine.  Victor D. Schwarz and Leonard Burningham have received
securities in Alpine as payment of legal fees.  Messrs. Schwarz and Burningham
are Selling Stockholders.

                                 Indemnification

     Alpine has adopted provisions in its Certificate of Incorporation and
bylaws that limit the liability of its directors and provide for
indemnification of its directors to the full extent permitted under the
Delaware General Corporation Law.  Under Alpine's Certificate of
Incorporation, and as permitted under the Delaware General Corporation Law,
directors are not liable to Alpine or its stockholders for monetary damages
arising from a breach of their fiduciary duty of care as directors. Such
provisions do not, however, relieve liability for breach of a director's duty
of loyalty to Alpine or its stockholders, liability for acts or omissions not
in good faith or involving intentional misconduct or knowing violations of
law, liability for transactions in which the director derived an improper
personal benefit or liability for the payment of a dividend in violation of
Delaware law. Further, the provisions do not relieve a director's liability
for violation of, or otherwise relieve Alpine or its directors from the
necessity of complying with, federal or state securities laws or affect the
availability of equitable remedies such as injunctive relief or rescission.

     At present, there is no pending litigation or proceeding involving a
director, officer, employee or agent of Alpine where indemnification will be
required or permitted.  Alpine is not aware of any threatened litigation or
proceeding that may result in a claim for indemnification by any director or
officer.

     Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities
Act of 1933 (the "Act") may be permitted to directors, officers and
controlling persons of Alpine pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or
otherwise, Alpine has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and
Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed
in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable.

     In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities
(other than the payment by Alpine of expenses incurred or paid by a director,
officer or controlling person of Alpine in the successful defense of any
action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or
controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, Alpine
will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by
controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the
question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as
expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication
of such issue.

                            Additional Information

Alpine has filed a Registration Statement under the Securities Act with
respect to the securities offered hereby with the Securities and Exchange
Commission.  This Prospectus, which is a part of the Registration Statement,

                     Independent Auditor'S Report



To the Board of Directors
of Alpine Air Express, Inc.

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Alpine Air
Express, Inc. and subsidiary  (a Utah corporation) as of October 31, 1999 and
1998, and the related statements of operations, stockholders' equity, and cash
flows for the years then ended.  These financial statements are the
responsibility of the management of Alpine Air Express, Inc. and subsidiary.
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements
based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with generally accepted auditing
standards.  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to
obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of
material misstatement.  An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence
supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements.  An audit
also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant
estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial
statement presentation.  We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis
for our opinion.

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above
present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Alpine Air
Express, Inc. and subsidiary as of October 31, 1999 and 1998, and the results
of their operations and their cash flows for the years then ended in
conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.

ALPINE AIR EXPRESS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARY
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 1.   Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
----------------------------------------------------

This summary of significant accounting policies of Alpine Air Express,
Inc. and subsidiary (the Company) is presented to assist in
understanding the Company's financial statements.  These accounting
policies conform to generally accepted accounting principles and have
been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial
statements.

Organization and Business Description   Alpine Aviation, Inc.(Alpine) was
incorporated in the state of Utah on October 3, 1975.
On June 12, 2000 Alpine entered into a transaction that was accounted
for as a reverse merger with Riverside Ventures, Inc., a Delaware
corporation incorporated on April 20, 1994.  At the time of the transaction,
Riverside Ventures, Inc. was inactive.  All of the
outstanding common stock of Alpine was exchanged for 9,895,000 shares
of common stock of Riverside Venture, Inc.  The transaction,
accounted for as a reverse merger acquisition, resulted in a
recapitalization of Alpine inasmuch as it was deemed to be the
acquiring entity for accounting purposes.  Subsequently, Riverside
Ventures, Inc. changed its name to Alpine Air Express, Inc.

In connection with the reverse merger, the 25,000 shares of common
stock of Alpine were exchanged at a rate of one share of Alpine for
395.8 shares of Riverside Ventures, Inc. The financial statements and
earnings per share data have been retroactively restated to reflect
the post merger share amounts.  The historical financial statements
prior to June 12, 2000 are those of Alpine.



The Company has involved in the hauling of air freight, serving
commuter routes, and providing pilot training.  The Company
terminated commuter flights in July 1999.  Until the termination of commuter
flights, the Federal government had enhanced the income of the Company on
those essential air
service routes.

Interim Financial Statements - The balance sheet as of July 31, 2000
and related statements of operations, stockholders' equity and cash
flows for the nine month periods ended July 31, 2000 and 1999 are
unaudited.  Periods reported on for the three months ended July 31,
2000 and 1999 are also unaudited.  However, in the opinion of
management these interim financial statements include all adjustments
(consisting of only normal recurring adjustments) which are necessary
for the fair presentation of the results for the interim periods
presented.  The results of operations for the unaudited nine month
and three month periods ended July 31, 2000 are not necessarily
indicative of the results which may be expected for the entire 2000
fiscal year.  Significant prepaid expenses reported on the balance sheet at
July 31, 2000, are the result of prepayments on federal income taxes of
$683,319, fuel taxes of $163,044, as well as insurance payments of $50,097 and
other prepaid expenses of $47,774.

In connection with the reverse merger with Riverside, Alpine entered into a
consulting agreement to deliver 105,000 of the merged company's shares and
$150,000.  Additionally, the consulting contract required another 943,850 of
the combined entity's shares to be issued for consulting services.  Alpine has
recognized a $1,430,250 expense in relation to these shares for consulting
services.

Additionally, in relation to the reverse merger, 56,150 shares remained in the
hands of Riverside shareholders.  These shares are treated as a one time

<PAGE> F-8

organizational expense in the amount of $76,568.



Marketable Securities - The Company held marketable equity and debt
securities recorded at aggregate fair market values totaling,
$649,715, and $39,414 at October 31, 1999 and 1998, respectively.
These securities are classified as available-for-sale.  Gross
unrealized gains and (losses) were $(57,586) and $4,995, for the
years ending October 31, 1999 and 1998, respectively.

Accounts Receivable  - The Company grants credit to its customers,
substantially all of whom are businesses located in the western
United States.  The Company has no policy requiring collateral on any
of its accounts receivable.

Note 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Continued)
-------------------------------------------------------------

Allowances of $100,000 and $50,000 were established for accounts
receivable at  October 31, 1999 and 1998, respectively.

Inventory - Inventory consists of airplane parts, fuel and oil, and
supplies and is stated at the lower of cost or market, determined
using the first-in, first-out method (FIFO).

Depreciation - Provision for depreciation of property, plant and
equipment is computed on the straight-line method for financial
reporting purposes.  Depreciation is based upon estimated useful
lives as follows:

         Buildings and improvements           10 to 20 Years
         Equipment                              2 to 7 Years
         Furniture and fixtures                 2 to 7 Years

Maintenance, repairs, and renewals which neither materially
add to the value of the equipment nor appreciably prolong its
life are charged to expense as incurred.  Gains and losses on
dispositions of equipment are included in net income.

Accumulated depreciation consists of $328,971, and $295,970
at October 31, 1999 and 1998, respectively.

Cash and Cash Equivalents - The Company considers demand
deposits at banks and money market funds at other financial
institutions with an original maturity of three months or
less to be cash equivalents.

Use of Estimates - The preparation of financial statements in
conformity with generally accepted accounting principles
requires management to make estimates and assumptions that
affect the reported amounts disclosed.  Accordingly, actual
results could differ from those estimates.

Earnings Per Share   Basic and fully diluted earnings per
share is computed by dividing net income available for common
stock by the weighted average number of common shares during
the period.

Revenue and Cost Recognition   The Company utilizes the
accrual method of accounting whereby revenue is recognized
when earned and expenses are recognized when incurred.

Additional Cash Flow Statement Disclosures - During the nine months
ended July 31, 2000 and 1999, the Company paid $3,059 and $11,673 in
interest and $1,336,630 and $743,006 in income taxes, respectively.

the U.S. Postal Service (USPS).  For the years ending October 31,
1999 and 1998, the revenues from contracts with the USPS represented

October 31, 1999 and 1998, accounts receivable from the USPS totaled
$1,152,536 and $992,133, respectively.  Although a loss of contracts
with the USPS would severely impact the financial position of the
Company, the Company's management believes that the relationship with
the USPS is excellent and will continue.

The Company maintains cash balances at several financial
institutions.  Accounts at each institution are insured by the
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation up to $100,000.  As of October

<PAGE> F-12

The purchase price will be paid for with shares of the Company's
common stock.  Solely for purposes of the CLB transaction, the
Company's common stock will be valued at $3.40 per share.  The option
is for a period of two years.  The purchase price was determined by
the "blue book" value of the planes owned by CLB less
any debt still owed on the planes.  As of the date of the option, CLB
had less than $840,000 in debt on its 24 planes.

On August 14, 2000 the Company entered into an agreement to sell
certain of its business assets to Keystone Aviation, LLC d.b.a.
Million Air of Salt Lake City, Utah.  Included in the agreement are
the sale of leasehold interests for certain property and buildings
leased at the Provo, Utah Airport and certain improvements and other
personal property held by the Company.  The sales price for these
assets will approximate $620,000 including $285,000 in cash at
closing and the balance in leaseback, and fuel credits to be applied
over the next two years.  It is anticipated that the sale will take
place on September 21, 2000 or earlier if all conditions of the sale
are met.

Note 9.   Recent Accounting Pronouncements
------------------------------------------

In June 1998, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB")
issued SFAS No. 133, "Accounting for Derivative Instruments and
Hedging Activities."  This statement establishes accounting and
reporting standards requiring that every derivative instrument be
recorded on the balance sheet as either an asset or liability
measured at fair value.  The statement also requires that changes in
the derivative's fair value be recognized currently in earnings
unless specific hedge accounting criteria are met.  In June 1999, the FASB
issued SFAS No. 137, which deferred the application of SFAS No.
133 from fiscal years beginning after June 15, 1999 to fiscal years
beginning after June 15, 2000.  The application of SFAS No. 133 is
not expected to have a material impact on the Company's financial
statement.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT



To the Board of Directors
of Riverside Ventures, Inc.

We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Riverside Ventures, Inc. (a
Delaware corporation) as of October 31, 1999 and 1998, and the related
statements of operations, stockholders' equity, and cash flows for the years
then ended.  These financial statements are the responsibility of the
management of Riverside Ventures, Inc.  Our responsibility is to express an
opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with generally accepted auditing
standards.  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to
obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of
material misstatement.  An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence
supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements.  An audit
also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant
estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial
statement presentation.  We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis
for our opinion.

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in
all material respects, the balance sheets of Riverside Ventures, Inc. as of
October 31, 1999 and 1998, and the results of its operations and its cash
flows for the years then ended in conformity with generally accepted
accounting principles.

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the
Company will continue as a going concern.  The Company is a development stage
company seeking out business opportunities, including acquisitions.  As
discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company's activities have
resulted in negative cash flows from operating activities and raise
substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.
Management's plans concerning these matters are also described in Note 1.
These financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result
from the outcome of this uncertainty.

                       (A Development Stage Company)
                       NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 1.Organization and Significant Accounting Policies

Nature of Business - The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State
of Delaware on April 20, 1994, for the purpose of seeking out business
opportunities, including acquisitions.  The Company is in the development
stage and will be very dependent on the skills, talents, and abilities of
management to successfully implement its business plan.

Business Condition - Since inception, the Company's activities have been
limited to organizational matters resulting in negative cash flows from
operating activities.  The Company's continued existence is dependent upon the
cash inflows from its investors.  Management believes that the Company will
continue as a going concern through investor capital contributions and
profitable business ventures.

Note 2.Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all short-term investments with an original maturity of
three months or less to be cash equivalents.

Note 3.Related Party Transactions

The Company currently receives the use of office space free of charge from an
officer of the Company.  The fair market value of the office space is
insignificant.

Additionally, the Company has received legal services valued at $1,730 from
stockholder's of the Company and is shown in the accounts payable - related
party account.

Note 4.Income Taxes

As of April 30, the Company has a net operating loss carry forward of $17,853
that will begin expiring in the year 2009.  No deferred tax asset has been
booked due to the uncertainty of the ability of the Company to use the loss
carry forward.

                           RIVERSIDE VENTURES, INC.
                        (A Development Stage Company)
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 5.Stock Option Plan

The Company has stock option plans for directors, officers, employees,
advisors, and employees of companies that do business with the Company, which
provide for non-qualified and qualified stock options.  The Stock Options
Committee of the Board determines the option price, which cannot be less than
the fair market value at the date of the grant or 110 percent of the fair
market value if the Optionee holds 10 percent or more of the Company's common
stock.  The price per share of shares subject to a Non-Qualified Option shall
not be less than 85 percent of the fair market value at the date of the grant.
Options generally expire either three months after termination of employment
or ten years after date of grant (five years if the optionee holds 10 percent
or more of the Company's common stock at the time of grant).  No options have
been granted under the plan.

Note 6.Subsequent Event

On June 12, 2000, the Company acquired all of the outstanding common stock of
Alpine Aviation, Inc. in exchange for 9,895,000 shares of common stock of
Riverside Ventures, Inc. in a transaction qualifying as a tax-free exchange
pursuant to Section 368 (a)(I)(B) of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended.
The transaction will be accounted for as a reverse acquisition with the
surviving entity being Alpine Air Express, Inc. (formerly Alpine Aviation,
Inc.)

Note 7.Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In June 1998, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued SFAS No.
133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities.  This
statement establishes accounting and reporting standards requiring that every
derivative instrument be recorded on the balance sheet as either an asset or
liability measured at fair value.  The statement also requires that changes in
the derivative's fair value be recognized currently in earnings unless
specific hedge accounting criteria are met.  In June 1999, the FASB issued
SFAS No. 137, which deferred the application of SFAS No. 133 from fiscal years
beginning after June 15, 1999 to fiscal years beginning after June 15, 2000.
The application of SFAS No. 133 is not expected to have a material impact on
the Company's financial statements.

The following unaudited pro forma combined balance sheet and statement of
income aggregate the unaudited balance sheet and statement of income of
Riverside Ventures, Inc. (Riverside) (a Delaware Corporation) as of April 30,
2000, and the unaudited balance sheet and statement of income of Alpine

effect to a transaction which was completed on June 12, 2000, wherein
Riverside acquired Alpine (the "Acquisition").  The business combination is
treated as a recapitalization of Alpine with Riverside issuing common stock in

financial statements of Alpine included in the October 31, 1999 pro forma
income statement were audited as of October 31, 1999.  Again, the format and

of Utah on October 3, 1975.  The Company was formed for the purpose of, but
not limited to, hauling air freight, serving commuter routes, and providing
pilot training.

Pro forma Adjustments - Riverside acquired all of the issued and outstanding
shares of Alpine in exchange for 9,895,000 shares of previously authorized but
unissued common stock of Riverside with a par value of $.001.  The acquisition
has been treated as a recapitalization of Alpine.  In addition, as part of the
merger, an additional 105,000 shares were issued in the merger in satisfaction
of an obligation of Riverside to Smith Consulting Services (SCS).  The
agreement required a total of 1,048,850 shares to be received in payment of
fees associated with the merger.  Consequently, a pro forma adjustment has
been recorded for the total value of shares issued to SCS of $1,430,250. As a
result of the expense incurred from payment of said fees, prepaid estimated
income tax payments exceeded current estimated taxes due in the amount of
$229,807.  Additionally, in relation to the reverse merger, 56,150 shares
remained in the hands of Riverside shareholders.  These shares are treated as
a one time organizational expense in the amount of $76,568.  Each of these
amounts is represented as a nonrecurring expense.

                                   PART II

Item 24. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.
--------------------------------------------------
     Alpine has adopted provisions in its Certificate of Incorporation and
bylaws that limit the liability of its directors and provide for
indemnification of its directors and officers to the full extent permitted
under the Delaware General Corporation Law. Under Alpine's articles of
incorporation, and as permitted under the Delaware General Corporation Law,
directors are not liable to Alpine or its stockholders for monetary damages
arising from a breach of their fiduciary duty of care as directors. Such
provisions do not, however, relieve liability for breach of a director's duty
of loyalty to Alpine or its stockholders, liability for acts or omissions not
in good faith or involving intentional misconduct or knowing violations of
law, liability for transactions in which the director derived as improper
personal benefit or liability for the payment of a dividend in violation of
Delaware law. Further, the provisions do not relieve a director's liability
for violation of, or otherwise relieve Alpine or its directors from the
necessity of complying with, federal or state securities laws or affect the
availability of equitable remedies such as injunctive relief or rescission.

      At present, there is no pending litigation or proceeding involving a
director, officer, employee or agent of Alpine where indemnification will be
required or permitted. Alpine is not aware of any threatened litigation or
proceeding that may result in a claim for indemnification by any director or
officer.

Item 25. Other Expenses of Issuance and Distribution.

Item 26. Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities.
-------------------------------------------------
     In June 2000, the Company issued 9,895,000 Shares to the four
shareholders of Alpine Aviation, Inc. in exchange for all of the outstanding
shares of Alpine Air. The transaction was exempt from registration under
Section 4(6) of the Securities Act.  As part of the acquisition of Alpine

     All schedules are omitted because they are not applicable or because the

Item 28. Undertakings.
----------------------
    (a)   The undersigned small business issuer hereby undertakes:

       (1) To file, during any period in which it offers or sells securities,
a post-effective amendment to this registration statement to: (i) Include any
prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act; (ii) Reflect in
the prospectus any facts or events which, individually or together represent a
fundamental change in the information in the registration statement; and (iii)
Include any material or changed information the plan of distribution.

       (2) For determining liability under the Securities Act, treat each
post-effective amendment as a new registration statement of the securities
offered, and the offering of the securities as at that time to be the initial
bona fide offering thereof.

       (3) File a post effective amendment to remove from registration any of
the securities that remain unsold at the end of the offering.

     (b)     To provide to the underwriter at the Closing specified in the
underwriting agreement certificates in such denominations and registered in
such names as may be required by the underwriter to permit prompt delivery to
each purchaser.

     (c)     Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the
Securities Act of 1933 (the "Act") may be permitted to directors, officers and
controlling persons of the small business issuer pursuant to the foregoing
provisions, or otherwise, the small business issuer has been advised that in
the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is
against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore,
unenforceable.  In the event that a claim for indemnification against such
liabilities (other than the payment by the small business issuer in the
successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such
director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities
being registered, the small business issuer will, unless in the opinion of its
counsel that matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a
court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by
it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by
the final adjudication of such issue.

     (d)     The undersigned small business issuer hereby undertakes that it
will:

       (1) For purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act
that the information omitted from the form of prospectus filed as part of this
registration statement in reliance upon Rule 430A and contained in a form of
prospectus filed by the Registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(1) or (4) or 497(h)
under the Securities Act shall be deemed to be a part of this registration
statement as of the time the Commission declared it effective.

        (2) For the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities
Act, that each post-effective amendment that contains a form of prospectus as
a new registration statement for the securities offered in the registration
statement, and that offering of the securities at that time as the initial
bona fide offering of those securities.
