Pilot Interview: Eric Ripley

November 18, 2020

We love our pilots! To celebrate all the hours and hard work they put in to both our medical and charter flights, we’re sitting them down for a question-and-answer session. For this Pilot Q&A, meet Eric Ripley!

CSI Aviation: Why did you choose to fly for CSI, and how long have you been with us?

Eric Ripley: I’ve been with CSI for two-and-a-half years. I chose to fly for CSI because the medevac flying seemed exciting and I’ve always wanted to fly King Airs.

CSI: What is your favorite story to tell about your flying experience?

ER: My favorite stories probably aren’t appropriate to share here, ha-ha! Honestly, I just love any time I get to fly. If the flight goes well and there are no major problems, I have fun.

CSI: What do you wish people knew about your job?

ER: I wish people knew not all pilots are airline pilots. Second, I wish people knew that airplanes do medevac, not just helicopters. Lastly, I wish they knew medevac pilots are cooler than any other type of pilot out there.

CSI: What’s your favorite type of aircraft?

ER: My favorite type of aircraft all time? That’s the P-51 Mustang. [Click here to read more.] It’s the sexiest airplane ever built and the epitome of an airplane.

CSI: Out of all of CSI’s airplanes, which is your favorite to fly?

ER: My favorite plane to fly at CSI; probably the 350. Who doesn’t like speed?

CSI: Any fun facts about yourself you want to share?

ER: Fun facts? My dog’s name is Boeing. He’s my best friend. I’m addicted to Dr Pepper.
