Why We Love Working at Erickson

Being surrounded by highly qualified and experienced coworkers. The drive and shared desire to be part of a winning team.

– Aaron (Jess) Stolp, Avionics and Electrical Design/Engineering

I enjoy the people I work with and having the ability to expand and learn more.

– Steve Derry, senior manager of airworthiness compliance and CASS

The relationships built in the industry from a personal and professional level – I pride myself on those relationships. Maintaining those is a big part of the sales world. I have developed great personal friendships from this professional role. I wouldn’t have met these folks and had these opportunities – Erickson has given me exposure in all kinds of industries.

– Steve Reavis, commercial sales manager

The long-term employee relationships and that it is always our ability to innovate. There is a tremendous opportunity. The aircraft is a Swiss Army utility knife; it has the opportunity to be used in many applications.
