Erik may be flying the only Clip T performing in airshows today with the "old school" Continental C-85.
The "T Clips" was originally built by Taylorcraft in 1939. It was 'clipped' for aerobatics in 1997 by Steve Givens using a mix of both the Swick and Legendary Duane Cole plans. Erik has further modified theT-Clips with inverted fuel and oil, airshow smoke systems and Catto propeller, making it the optimal "up close and personal," crowd-pleasing airshow machine.
Who is Erik?
Erik began flight training at the age of 6 with his father. At age 8 he was ready to solo with a tailor-made seat and control extensions. At age 10 he learned spins which sparked his life-long passion for aerobatics. Erik has worked as a Flight Instructor/Pilot for an air combat school in the AT-6/SNJ. He has also flown corporate jobs in Lear Jets, King Airs, etc. In fact, he has now flown over 150 different makes and models of aircraft. A farmer by trade, Erik takes to the skies as naturally as he plants in the fields. Erik is thrilled to be living the dream and flying a one of a kind comedy/aerobatic act in the "T-Clips."
