When I received the news of his passing I was filled with great sadness. Not only has aviation lost a legend but also a mentor for all who shared his passion for real understanding.

I will always remember Eddie for "old school" expertise and willingness to share it. I spent many days watching Eddie in his workshop performing overhauls with the attention to detail of a perfectionist. There was always a welcome smile and sometimes a cup of coffee. He offered advice and encouragement, and those who had the privilege to know him, became better at having real insight into what the instruments in the cockpit told them.

I shall miss him not only as a business associate but also as a friend.

My thoughts are with Helen and the family.
