  • Cas Smith

    We continue to be shocked and saddened beyond belief to hear of our legend and mentor CFI Cas Smith’s passing during early April of this year. He was truly an amazing man who lived a very full life and inspired so many people with his kindness and charm and unique teaching skills.
    He leaves a massive void and as a club we can truly say he will be missed by everyone we know in the aviation world. He was the heart and soul of our airfield.
    Thank you seems inadequate for all that you have given to all of us over the years Cas, rest in peace and may you have clear skies and fly free.
