The face of the Spirit of Flight: Elliott Seguin

Last night the Society of Experimental Test Pilots awarded Elliott Seguin with the Spirit of Flight. The honor was bestowed at the Homebuilder’s Dinner during the EAA’s Air Venture annual convention.

We think the award’s name particularly fits the effervescent Seguin who is employed at Scaled Composites. Nearly single-handedly he’s popularized experimental and sport aviation in the Mojave and greater area with his tireless enthusiasm. Both a participant and promoter, Seguin has brought much attention to cutting edge homebuilding and his own personal accomplishments in light aircraft.

But above all, Seguin’s enthusiasm is a national treasure to sport aviation. And as he would say, we find the award, “So freaking cool!” Congrats, Elliott!
