He was chief pilot for Bradley Mining Company, general manager for Boise Air Service, chief pilot for Mackay Bar Corporation, and chief pilot for S.P. Aircraft. He also helped build two ranches in the Idaho wilderness. He is a veteran of World War II, having served in the United States Navy. He took his pilot training using the G.I Bill. He logged more than 20,000 hours flying time by 1989, when he retired from commercial flying. After that, he continued to teach students and give flight reviews.

Harold Dougal taught me to fly almost 50 years ago.
I love to tell the story of just after I got my license I stopped at a crop-dusting business and asked about getting a job flying with them and they proceeded to make me feel about 2" high because he said that the way new pilots were being taught he would rather teach someone with no flying experience at all. After sometime I just happened to mention that Harold taught me to fly. He just stopped and said "OH, then you would be just fine; you know how to fly." (Or something to that effect.) This book is filled with many stories about flying in the Idaho mountains that are spellbinding!
