Another One in the Books

ASCI 309 Aerodynamics

It’s very hard to believe but another semester of Aerodynamics has ended! Always amazing how fast the nine-week term goes.

Many thanks to Aindrea, Caleb, Jaewon and Sam!

Again, another exceptional group of students!

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience working with my four students, learned something new from each of them and wish them great success in their lives and careers going forward!


Embry-Riddle Graduates in the Real World

It’s always great to catch up with Embry-Riddle alums and see where we’ve landed in the aviation/airline world.

This past week I flew a three-day trip with a Daytona Beach graduate. We had a great time reminiscing and comparing notes about our Riddle days. I spent three years on campus in Prescott before transferring to what is now known as the WorldWide campus.

We had a regional airline pilot in our jumpseat during the three days who also was a Daytona Beach Riddle student.

Later on, I had one of my Prescott classmates and his wife on board our A320 seated in the passenger cabin. He walked into the flight deck during boarding and we had fun remembering the old days on campus. Scott is a United captain who often flies the LA to Tokyo route.

It occurred to me that we all represent different Embry–Riddle campuses: Daytona Beach, Prescott and WorldWide.
