Eshott CFI tragedy
Eshott Chief Flying Instructor Steve Clarehugh has been
killed in a road accident.

Steve, 54, started flying over 20 years ago and had been instructing from Eshott in Northumberland for the past 16 years. As well as an instructor with Purple Aviation and examiner, he was an engineering inspector both for the BMAA and the PFA.

He was also an experienced test pilot and had been involved in several build projects. A father of two, he lived next to the airfield with his wife Fiona.
"He was always there to help anyone with his ‘can do’ attitude. This is a devastating shock to our community and a huge loss to us all. Steve was known to each of us for so many different reasons and was at the heart and soul of our airfield," said Purple Aviation boss Storm Smith.

I'd met Steve a few times, although didn't know him well. I always found him a decent man, with a good professional reputation. Doubtless he'll be much missed.
