A great mentor to me and many other Aviators, a stalwart of the Wynyard Aero Club
Brian owned a few nice aircraft over the years a few I had the pleasure to fly.
RIP Brian

Brian was my first boss when I was a very green 18 year old commercial pilot in Wynyard many years ago.
He taught me a lot.
RIP Brian.

I can't say that I knew Brian well but met him in the late 90s' when he would bring his C150 over from Wynyard to Devonport with other members for a fly-in come barbecue. Always had a smile and a friendly greeting.
