Based in Los Angeles, he wrote "Grand Central" in the arrival column of the Register. His second and third landings, on Saturday, April 13, 1935, and Thursday, November 7, 1935, respectively, were in the Stinson model W he identified as NC12146.

It includes links and downloads that give insight into this intelligent and entrepreneurial pilot's activities. He was born May 5, 1891 and died May 28, 1963. He would have been old enough to appreciate the first Wright airplane flight, as well as the first flights of humans into space. He carried Transport license T10006.
