Formerly a helicopter flight instructor, he has flown 21 different basic helicopter types and currently holds ATP, A&P, AGI, IGI ratings and FCC General Class Radiotelephone License. Both Tom and his wife, Dorene, are former members of the Tuolumne County Search and Rescue Team and live in the Sierra Nevada foothills of California. Tom is a member of HAI, IHFA and PAMA.
