What can you look forward to as a successful professional pilot, if you play your cards right? Airline captain Sam Weigel introduces us to his "dream home" in progress on a grass strip in the Pacific Northwest.

Sam Weigel has been an airplane nut since an early age, and when he's not flying the Boeing 737 for work, he enjoys going low and slow in vintage taildraggers. He and his wife live west of Seattle, where they are building an aviation homestead on a private 2,400-foot grass airstrip.
