Kent BeckhamReal downer. Our paths never crossed enough. Taught me to fly sailplanes & towplanes, many moons ago. Did some AD welding on my old Pitts. You will be missed & remembered.
George WilsonThe aviation community has lost a great AME. Chris spent his life immersed in all aspects of flying and aircraft maintenance. His skills, professionalism and dedication were second to none. He was a master problem solver and was able to confidently navigate the nightmare of aviation rules and regulations. Chris oversaw the maintenance of my gliders for many years ensuring their reliability. He inspired me to become involved in aircraft maintenance. Chris maintained the workhorse tug, OHJ at the London Gliding Club from early in his career saying that it was a collection of replaceable parts. I understand that OHJ continues to be in service to this day as a testament to his skills. Many of my fondest memories include Chris at XU and the gliding club. My thoughts are with his family, friends, co-workers and clients.
