Friday photo: prop contrail


The moment: Prop contrails

The place: Northeast Florida Regional Airport (KSGJ), St. Augustine, FL

The aircraft: Super Decathlon

The memory: In addition to a fun day of aerobatics, the temperatures were cool with enough moisture to produce condensation trails off the propeller tips during this spin captured by my GoPro.

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.
