Friday photo: “clear above”


The moment: Breaking out on top

The pilot: anonymous

The place: Near Richmond Municipal Airport (KRID), Richmond, IN

The aircraft: Piper Malibu Mirage

The memory: There’s nothing like breaking out on top after departing a cloudy Muncie, IN. After weeks away from the cockpit, I decided to mount my GoPro HERO 8 for a lasting memory and was able to grab this cool shot above an overcast layer near Richmond, IN although it looks like it could be anywhere in the world.

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.
