Carl Foster, with Flying Samaritans


I have been flying for the Tucson chapter of the Flying Samaritans since September 2006. Flying Samaritans is a nonprofit organization that provides free dental and medical services to underserved communities in Baja California. I first soloed in April 1975 and have accumulated over 1500 hours of flying since then even with a 22-year gap. 


I retired from Raytheon Missile Systems as an Engineering Fellow in 2011. I moved from San Diego to Tucson in 1994 with the merger of General Dynamics Convair and Hughes Missile Systems. My main interests are amateur radio, scuba diving, woodworking, and aviation.
