Tom Lehman is a retired Alaska Airlines pilot who lives in Corbett, OR. He owns a two-seater Super Cub, a rugged, agile craft preferred by Alaskan bush pilots. Tom keeps the plane in a hangar barn he built on his property.
Five years ago Tom's son was hit by a car while biking cross-country, leaving him physically and mentally handicapped. Tom and his wife have been thrust into the role of full-time caregivers.
Flying to remote landing strips in Oregon's public lands is Tom's way of taking care of himself.
