Matt Wright - Sunday 4th December

It is with great sadness that I have to report that Matt Wright has been fatally injured in his glider at Brentor today. We do not know any details and the AAIB are investigating.

 Matt was a highly experienced pilot and friend to all of us at the Devon and Somerset Gliding Club. He was always full of energy and loved every aspect of aviation. Not only was he an expert glider pilot, but also an accomplished commercial Airline Captain, film maker and cartoonist. 

Our sincere condolences go to his family at this sad time.
