Sorry the pictures are not in better chronological order. I have about 30,000 hours in the cockpit but very few website-builder hours :)
Part of my job for the Wardman's was to fuel airplanes. This one belonged to timber magnate and family friend, C. A. King.
My commercial pilot story began as a 20 year old that just had to fly! The place was Quincy, California flying for Wardman Flying Service. The airplane in the picture below is a 1948 Luscombe 8A at the old Sacramento Sky Ranch in 1960. The strip had gravel wired-in runways.

I am now retired from most commercial aviation. but still like to teach stick & rudder fundamentals in my Luscombe (which I recently sold). As of May 1, 2019 I retired as Sensei of Sugarpine Aviators Martial Arts at the age of 79. At this writing (1/30/21) I still teach Anthropology for Feather River College.
