About Tom Schuster
Tom started flying in 1972 after his friend Dick Rhody took him for a flight in his TriPacer. By 1973, he had his Private certificate. A few years later, Dick bought a Cessna 170 in which he told Tom, “Keep the tanks full when you are done with it”. He did a lot of flying with that. In 1980, he got his instrument rating, and in 1981 he added his Commercial certificate. He later got into a group with a Mooney and flew that for eight years. After some time off, he is now flying a 172 and Arrow, and has almost 1,000 hours.
