Returning from a sailing voyage around the Pacific with Vickie, his wife, Captain Case was beginning to think his flying career was over when the phone rang. It was an old friend and fellow pilot telling him of a company in Michigan that was hiring. It had been over three years since touching the controls; he needed a complete ground school and probably a few months as a copilot before being ready for the left seat once more. The chief pilot liked him and seemed more interested in hearing about his sailing experience. After a brief interview the chief pilot said, “This isn’t much of an airline, but if you promise me you’ll work for six-months after getting back on the line, I’ll get you current.” Captain Case gave his word staying with the company for over six years as they grew to become an around the world carrier for Emery Air Freight. After ground school he was awarded the left seat as a captain making him more than a bit cautious. He eventually became one of their instructors and check airmen; teaching others the tricks of the trade.
Captain Case left to become a freelance pilot offering his services to the highest bidder. He trained pilots in South America, flew for Kenya Airways on their international routes eventually settling with Air Marshall Islands where he flew the Majuro-Honolulu-Christmas Island schedule. He was one of their senior international captains and Director of Flight Operations before the age-sixty rule caught up with him forcing him to hang up his goggles.
