About Roger Wess
Roger was born on a farm near Remsen, Iowa, where he remembers walking across the farmyard to see a huge Convair B-36 Peacemaker fly low over the farm. In 1968, while attending the University of Toledo, he was able to squeeze in flight training at a little airport across the state line in Michigan, flying a Piper Colt. Most of his flying career has been based out Chadron, NE (CDR), as he taught at Chadron State College for 34 years and remained in Chadron after retirement. Chadron is located in an area where you travel a least a hundred miles to a community of any size, so he made good use of his flying skills.
