Friday photo: short final on a glassy morning


The moment: short final

The place: Lake Cumberland Regional Airport (KSME), Somerset, KY

The aircraft: Piper Seminole

The memory: This fall morning is what you’d describe as “glassy”…not a bump in the sky with unrestricted visibility. Now, no excuses after being on speed and on glideslope short final for runway 5.

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.
