In April 16 1937, the Winnipeg Tribune described how Ted Stull will be supervising "one of the largest freight contracts ever given in Manitoba". It involved a Fairchild 82 shipping 25 tons of mining materials from Churchill to Rankin Inlet by flying 45 650 mile round trips.

A May 11th 1937 Winnipeg Tribune article, reported a story of Ted Stull successfully landing a Fairchild 82 freighter on one ski, as the other ski was broken and dangling loosely. He had four passengers with him, none of who were injured. The article ends with a comment that other pilots, of the day, were high in their praise of Stull’s piloting as they read between the lines of Stull’s reported "Landed here safely; send rail transport".

In 1938 he joined the newly formed Trans-Canada Airlines His successful career with TCA led to his appointment as Eastern Superintendent in 1939 and later Western Region Operations Manager, based in Vancouver B.C. in 1948. He remained in this position until his death in 1956.
