Paul De Wytt-Hilton RIP 1931-2017
If any one knew Paul De Wytt-Hilton, he died peacefully on the 19 December 2017 in the UK. He flew for South African Airways, Air Mauritius and DC3's for Africa Charter Airlines which was owned by Sherell Cunningham based at Grand Central. He was then doing part time instruction at Rand Airport. Due to his Parkinsons he left South Africa in 2011 to be cared for in the UK. His last words to anyone who new him was "Au Revoir my flying Friends, my memories of you all are with me now, remember me with Kindness please. Good bye and Happy Landings"

Met him when I got involved in a B707 operation (Impala Air) based at the then, Jan Smuts Airport. Paul was flying as a co-pilot there. From what I gathered he became a professional co-pilot ie didn't want the hassles of command.
