Herman A. Ecker learned to fly probably in 1911, making the first flight in his hometown of Syracuse, New York, that same year. After honing his skills as a pilot and an airplane builder with several other aircraft (possibly as many as four), he built this flying boat in 1912 or early 1913. Highlighted in this image is the wing of the Ecker Flying Boat.
