Dean Solum of Halstad, Minn., had never been in a plane before he got a summer job at a crop-dusting business at age 19. The owner took him along for a ride one day and he was hooked. Now the 50-year-old, Solum owns his own business, Airborne Custom Spraying. He spends his summers spraying crops by day and mosquitoes by night.
