Who We Are
Tom Tormey: Owner/Pilot
A 30+ year veteran of Silicon Valley with a masters in Electrical Engineering from UC Berkeley, Tom began living his lifelong dream of flying 15 years ago while working as a VP of Engineering at his latest start-up and raising 3 sons with his wonderful wife Molly. Starting with his initial private pilot certificate, Tom added an instrument rating, a multi engine rating, and ultimately a commercial pilot certificate. Over time Tom moved up from training aircraft to high performance single engine aircraft and 8 years ago purchased what many pilots consider the best light-twin-engine piston aircraft ever built, a Beechcraft G58 Baron. Tom kept his flying skills sharp with the help of some of the best instructors on the West coast and twice yearly recurrence training at Fight Safety while flying whenever and wherever he could- job and family permitting. In 2015 Tom and Molly, now empty nesters, retired and moved to Bend Oregon where Tom immediately signed up as an Angel Flight Command Pilot and hasn't stopped flying since. With over 130 Angel Flight missions and 50,000 flown miles under his belt so far, starting an Air Taxi Service in Bend seemed like the next natural step in the evolution of a second career in aviation.
