  1. I just finished reading everything about Arnie Schreder who I did not know. I was to find out within a few lines that he was an amazing person/pilot who loved doing what he did, which was fly. I also listened to him explain that he was the chief Pilot for Buffalo Airways. I was to find out that in the last couple of years his face was a familiar one on the TV series Ice Pilots NWT. I believe I can say that Arnie had a complete life but was taken from this earth a little early. I'm sure he will be missed by many who knew him. Great article.
