The thrill of aviation became a lifelong passion for Eric Brunner. Growing up in Eastern Wyoming, he developed an understanding of the value of hard work and team-building. He was transplanted to Flagstaff, Arizona while in middle school and eventually to Sedona. He stumbled upon an after-school job at the Sedona Airport. Eric began his climb one aircraft at a time, washing and maintaining the flight line under the direction of Col. Ed Maxson. Under the training of Col. Maxson, Eric became a pilot at the age of 17. It was here he began to fly and continue on to become a commercial pilot and maintain a continued presence in the Verde Valley at the Sedona Airport.
With his father, Larry Brunner, they began a joint venture to bring biplane tours in a new Waco to Sedona. Eric flew their first new Waco Biplane to the Sedona Airport on Christmas Eve, December 1994. Our company has been awarded an unlimited air carrier certificate by the FAA.
