Todd Rust

Raised in aviation: “I grew up crazy about airplanes. I pumped fuel into hundreds of aircrafts for one dollar an hour – thanks, Dad!”

Then and now: “When my dad, Hank Rust, started Rust’s Flying Service in 1963, we flew with one finger on a paper map in our laps and an overhead radio speaker that sounded like the drive-thru.”

Alaskan to the core: As a pilot, Todd hardly considered living and working anywhere else. “There’s a grit and resourcefulness in Alaskans that allows one to determine their own path.”

Whether you were born and raised in Alaska or just have the Alaska born and raised spirit, we want to hear from you.
