Aviation Safety Letter 4/2004
Tribute to Rick Wynott — 1951-2004
On Sunday June 6, 2004, Rick Wynott of Brampton Flying Club passed away unexpectedly at the age of 52. Rick Wynott was an integral part of the Brampton Flying Club for over 30 years. Most of his career he acted as the chief flight instructor (CFI) of Brampton Flying Club, one of the largest flight schools in Canada. Rick was responsible for transforming Brampton Flying Club from a small grass strip airport to the world-class flight training facility it is today.
Since March 2003, he served as the general manager of the Brampton Airport and Flying Club. Rick was also a director on the board of the Air Transport Association of Canada (ATAC). His insight and experience has been sought after by flight schools across Canada and by both Transport Canada and the Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB). Rick Wynott was an innovative and pro-active leader in the world of flight training and aviation, and he will be greatly missed.
