About Ed Harrison
Ed Harrison is an instrument-rated pilot who began his love of aircraft as a child after spending time around airplanes while flying with his father. He did not earn his PPL until after having spent time “flying” telephone poles as a US Navy Seabee, but completed it just before the birth of his oldest child, Brian (now 38). “Granted his PPL in celebration of his son’s birth,” the FAA later claimed. Ed has owned two Bonanzas and is also a partner in an RV-7 he helped assemble 10 years ago (although some dispute how much help he was). He lives with his wife, Trish, just south of Dallas in Ovilla, Texas. They have three grown children and 10 grandkids. He recently retired from a 37-year career as a custom home builder and land developer.
