The NTSB recently released its report on an accident in which a 20-year veteran of the organization was among the victims. It was the Dec. 16, 2017, nighttime crash of a Cessna T210M near Oldenburg, Indiana, in which all three people and a dog on board the airplane were killed. A second dog survived the crash.
Dr. Paul Schuda, director of the NTSB Training Center in Ashburn, Virginia, was one of the passengers who died in the fated flight. The pilot-in-command was Schuda’s friend Dr. Louis Cantilena Jr., a professor and director of clinical pharmacology and medical technology at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland. Cantilena was a member of CAP’s national Congressional Squadron, and Schuda was an official of the CAP’s National Capital Wing. Also on board was Cantilena’s daughter, Amy, who was a postgraduate student at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
