Remembering Martin Johnson

in
Sadly, we announce the passing of our friend and long time pilot, Martin Johnson - on 19 August 2014.
 
Martin started flying as one of my early students, way back in the early 90’s, and has been a constant flying companion and friend to a bunch of us since then.
 
He was a good spirited and humorous buddy to share the pleasures of flight with and always enjoyed company and a day out on the hill.
 
Martin was the embodiment of a careful and safe pilot, and is famous for having flown very regularly for over 20 years and in that entire time, only suffered the injury of a bruised thumb.
 
Martin was in his mid 70’s. He had been exposed to asbestos in his youth, and this led to asbestosis. 
 
Our condolences to his wife Anthea and family, who can be reached on 09 4181965.
 
We’ll miss ya buddy!
