Non-profit now accepting applications for flight training scholarships
Eric Ingram will soon leave Houston for Washington, D.C., and his new career with the FAA Office of Commercial Space Transportation.
A member of Able Flight‘s Class of 2011, Eric will work as an aerospace engineer on the team that reviews licensing and permitting of technologies and applications proposed by commercial space companies.
It’s a busy time for Eric as he is also finishing his masters thesis at the University of Houston. Long fascinated by astrophysics, and a physics major in college, Eric’s new career is the perfect match for his training and skills, Able Flight officials note.
And in his new job, he’ll be joining his childhood friend and fellow Able Flight classmate Kevin Crombie, who was earlier hired as a safety officer in the FAA’s commercial space program.
