January 5, 2017 – Congratulations to Isaac Ericson, EAA 1100893, who created a family tradition on his 16th birthday December 3 by soloing in the same Stits Playboy his father once did. Todd Ericson, EAA 288654, helped build the Playboy at just 14 years old with his own father, Clyde Ericson, EAA 87088, making this flight all the more special. Congratulations again, Isaac, on achieving this important milestone in such a memorable way, and good luck as you continue working toward your aviation goals!
