On Wednesday October 10, 2001, Bombardier Aerospace recognized the unique contributions of Eric and his colleagues Dave Riggs and Bryan Ireland in a service at the Flight Test Center in Wichita. A beautiful and moving speech was given by Pete Reynolds, the VP of Flight Test, followed by a company wide moment of silence. The service was attended by members of all three families.
The company also erected a plaque and gave each of the families a small plaque to keep.
