Ken Alwyn RIP

Kenneth Alwyn, long-time instructor at both Shoreham and Goodwood died Friday 10th Dec. aged 95. Lengthy obituaries in both DT and The Times. Primarily known for his long career as an international orchestral conductor, he previously had a career with the RAF and continued his flying as an instructor until well into the 1990s.
I was fortunate in having him as my primary instructor at Goodwood and with only one month in 1985 (April !) available due to my overseas work commitments, he managed in spite of the weather to get me through my PPL.
Many thanks Ken.. Safe Flight.

An absolute Gent, an exemplary instructor (in my opinion) and also an extremely talented chap in many other fields - People of his ilk will be sorely missed by the rest of us! He had an amazingly long innings but the world will be a worse place without him!
