Bakersfield pilot coming to Mojave for Plane Crazy Saturday | News

MOJAVE — This month’s Plane Crazy Saturday event, hosted by the Mojave Transportation Museum, will take place April 16 with guest speaker Todd Schultz.

Schultz is a full-time professional pilot from Bakersfield who flies Beechcraft King Air and Cessna Citation jets on Golden State Air Charter. He is also the founder of the Golden Age Flight Museum located at Tehachapi Airport.

In an excerpt from Transportation Museum President Cathy Hansen:

Todd Schultz founded the Golden Age Flight Museum in 2016. Growing up in an aviation family, he developed a passion for aviation at an early age. He never missed an opportunity to fly with his father. Still in high school, Todd earned his pilot’s license and now has several additional certificates. These include the airline pilot and flight instructor for single-engine, multi-engine and instrument instruction. He is also certified in gliders and seaplanes.

His talented mechanical training earned him an FAA Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic certificate. Currently, he is employed as a captain for an FAA Part 135 aircraft charter company in Bakersfield. Its logbook documents flights in more than 100 aircraft types. Todd graduated from Utah State Aeronautical University with a degree in Aviation Management. This extra skill prepared him to become a complete pilot

Todd’s love of all things aviation, both contemporary and vintage, has inspired him to save airplanes, gliders, cars, tanks, trucks, and related items. Its mission is to restore them to working order and expose them to the public. Additionally, it is important to Todd to share his knowledge base by promoting educational programs, including STEM platforms.

This led to the creation of the Golden Age Flight Museum where things work and fly while exposing young people to the world of aviation. Given the many aircraft donations to the museum, Todd has earned a reputation as a trustworthy custodian of the past and the future.

The presentation will take place at 11:00 a.m. in the MASP board room! Limited places ! Thanks for RSVP! or 661.342.0604 Donation requested for presentation.
