THE FOUNDER’S STORY

Adventure runs in the family for TJ. He was all things mechanical: cars, bikes and airplanes. At 15 years of age, TJ began flying with his mother, also an avid adventurer. Their maiden voyage was in a Beech C24 Sierra at the Beech Aero Club in Van Nuys, California. Since then, TJ earned his Commercial Multi-Engine and Instrument Ratings, Formation LEAD and aerobatic qualified, Mitsubishi Mu2 & Lear jet type ratings and has owned a variety of single engine, multi-engine and tailwheel airplanes.

Aviation became a magnificent obsession. TJ’s first aircraft was a 1974 Grumman Traveler, followed by a 1983 Yak 52. In 2004, he sold the Yak 52 for a Yak 50. To honor his Father’s Navy service aboard the USS CASSIN YOUNG (DD793), the aircraft was painted in Navy colors. The Cassin Young has a rich heritage in WWII and is now a floating museum in Boston Harbor. TJ’s Yak 50 carries the ship’s number in remembrance of his father and those lost at sea.
