Bob Ellis
Director Marketing and Operations

I'm Scott Perdue. In a former life I flew the  F-4 and F-15E, more recently I retired from a major airline. My callsign from the Air Force is Gunny, given, I imagine because I spent 8 years as an enlisted Marine. Nothing to do with my attitude, I'm sure!

Mostly I like flying, or teaching flying. I was an Instructor Pilot in the Air Force and got my FAA CFI certificates the old fashioned way. I've taught in everything from a Cessna 150 , Beechcraft Bonanzas to Fighters.  I started a company several years ago to teach Upset Recovery Training in an Extra 300L. When we started EFM it was oriented mostly to training in Warbirds, we taught in T-6 Texans, DC-3's and B-25's. It was fun, although a tad expensive. 

EFM has switched its focus to the general aviation pilot, where hopefully we can have a more significant impact. In the US Air Force over 98% of the flying in the Fighter world is to hone your skills for the 2% of the flying you were hired to do. Training is how we get better, and every time we learn something new its fun. Besides, training is a great excuse to just go flying. After all, just flying is the reward in itself!

I'm Bob Ellis and this will be my Tenth year at the Eagle Flying  Museum where the flying and fun starts every day. I never have the same experience when I open the hangar door and have been a pilot for 35 years and thru the museum programs I have flown a variety of WWII and General aviation aircraft from Tail Wheel to Complex High performance its been a real dream come true and I have met some amazing people on the adventures. I hope you can join us this year as we continue to develop flight safety programs at the Eagle Flying Museum and document Flying adventures on the FlyWire You Tube Channel.
