Captain Tex Searle thought of nothing but flying from his early youth. As a young boy lying on large stacks of hay (on his father's farm in Delta, Utah), he could observe the old tri-motors and biplanes flying CAM4 (Civil Air Mail) flights between Salt Lake City and Los Angeles. At age 17 Tex was serving on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific, after the war he began flying for frontier Airlines based in Denver, Colorado. Upon retirement from Frontier as Captain in 1985, Tex served as Director of Training and later Chief Pilot for charter and mail contractors. His first love was in flying the old DC-3s on cargo runs throughout Alaska. Besides being rated on various large aircraft, Captain Searle has flown the Learjet on charter and mail runs, has flown for the U.S. Forest Service, and owned various aircraft including the "Hog," a 600-horsepower Stearman used in mountain seeding and crop spraying.
