|Personal History||At 16 he began working for a small time Crop Dusting outfit called Ghoper's Ag Services out ofi Winnebago County. It was there he learned how to work on old prop engines and occasionally took to the skies with the owner of the company. And occasionally took to the sky without him. When he turned 18 it did not take him very long for him to get his pilot's license and begin flying on his own for the company. Once he graduated he thank Bill, the owner, for his time and experience. It is something that he would never forget.
College life was seemed to be rather fast for Tom. He kept cracking his books working towards his college degree in Aeronautical Engineering. On his spare time he kept flying small planes out of College Park Airport. Even decided to take up learning on how to flying helicopters in his spare time and give scenic tours of the mountains areas outside of the Washington D.C. area.
He was in the US Navy from 2013 to 2017 only rising to the rank of Lieutenant junior grade. After a disastrous international incident in the Black Sea with a pair of Russian MiGs. Resulting in his employment and training in being a Civilian Drone Pilot. A far cry from flying the America's powerful F/A-18 Super Hornet off of an aircraft carrier deck.
After being relegated to being a Drone Pilot for over a year and a half he was approached by a member from a Specter Defense Services due to his skills in maintaining and operating fixed wing and rotary aircraft along with his recent knowledge of operating drone aircraft.
