Jazz trombonist Bill Yeager has been the director of jazz studies at San Diego State University since 1985. From 1977 to 1987 Yeager and Helzer ran the Los Angeles Jazz Workshop. At the time Yeager lived in the San Fernando Valley. He flew himself to and from San Diego in a Cessna 172. It was expensive, but flying had its perks.

“Flying back home,” he says, “I’d look down and see the rush hour traffic backed up on the 405.”

He says he sold the airplane when he got married and moved to Carlsbad. “There’s not much I want to get away from now.”
