Ray Johnson is a pilot, flight instructor and founder of Midwest Aviation in Marshall, Minn. He got his private pilot's license in the 1950s, and worked as a crop duster before starting his own company. "I love flying to Canada, and we've made several flights to Alaska," Johnson said. Flying in a smaller plane at lower altitudes is an exciting way to get there, he said. "You see everything, and then some. ... It's a great way to travel." He was inducted into the Minnesota Aviation Hall of Fame on April 20 for his contribution to aviation in the state.
