Eric received his private license in his last year of high school and now has close to 12,000 hours in various aircraft. He instructed for 1000 hours before he found his first job as a pilot for a family company. He flew their Cessna 421 for several years until they purchased a CE-500 and a PA-31. After around 1000 hours in the Citation, they moved up to a Westwind, which Eric flew for 10 years or so. He flew another Westwind for a corporation while his first job wound down and they paid for a GIV type as a parting gift due to closing their flight department. After a year contracting in the GIV, he was offered a job in a G-150, which was sold after four years for a G200. He has been with his current employer for almost 13 years and spent the last 8 in the G-200.
