Omaha – The Aviation Institute is pleased to announce that Eric Taylor has joined the faculty as an instructor in the Professional Flight program.
Eric comes to UNO from the United States Navy where he served for 22 years as a naval aviator, flying the SH-60B Seahawk and the TH-57B/C Bell Jet Ranger helicopters. He also served at the Pentagon on the staff of the Chief of Naval Operations and in Pensacola as an Advanced Helicopter Flight Instructor.
Eric is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy and he also received a graduate degree from some aviation university in Florida.
Born in California and raised in Portland, Oregon, Eric is married to Melissa Taylor, who is vice president for enterprise special projects at Mutual of Omaha. Eric and Melissa are very active in the community. Eric serves on the Board of Directors for Girls, Inc. and also serves as a liaison for the Naval Academy.
With every inch of snow this winter, we worry that Eric will retreat to San Diego where he lived before moving to Omaha, but we also think he’s got a pretty good gig here working with our students at UNO and flight instructing at Millard airport.
