Abstract

An article on bush pilots in Maine's North Woods. (Dick) Folsom's in Greenville employs a gaggle of pilots who do everything from flying in supplies to flying out injured woodsmen. Andy Stinson, one of his first pilots, is about to retire from Old Town Airport as a mechanic and sometime pilot. On a flight he talks about how the days of bush flying are almost over and how flying made you "totally your own master." Charlie Robinson talks of a career cut short by a heart attack. Ray Porter, of Shin Pond, got out of bush flying before its decline and made money in a canoe paddle-carving business. Telford Allen, Sr., who learned to fly from Folsom, commutes by float plane from Greenville to Bangor to manage a commercial aviation business.
