Friday photo: Priscilla Marapodi Commercial Multiengine checkride


The moment: Commercial Multiengine checkride

The pilot: Priscilla Marapodi

The place: Montgomery-Gibbs Executive Airport (KMYF), San Diego, CA

The aircraft: Beech Duchess

The memory: I’m very happy for everything I have accomplishment so far in aviation. One of the many things that I love about aviation is the fact that I am challenged everyday. This Multi training was a quite a challenge because is the only multi engine aircraft in the club. After breaking at least 6 times during me training and once on check ride I was able to finish strong, sometimes I need to pinch myself but it’s all good now. Looking forward for new challenges (CFI) 🙂

It was his first airplane trip at age seven that made Eric decide to become a pilot. "While boarding the airplane, a flight attendant noticed my interest in the flight deck and urged me to go talk to the pilot. I give a lot of credit to that pilot for my career choice." He earned a bachelor’s degree in finance and went on to an airline career. Eric now heads Sporty’s flight school and directs the University of Cincinnati’s Professional Pilot Training Program. In addition, Eric serves as a Captain in Sporty’s corporate flight department.
