It is with absolute sorrow that Flying NZ regrets to inform you that Jay Peters passed away peacefully after a short illness on Sunday 26th April.
Jay Peters as the CFI of the Canterbury Aero Club and a long term Member of the Flying NZ Instructor Council, serving as a Council Member and Chairman, was an inspirational leader of Flight Training in NZ. Jay was a loyal supporter of the Aero Club movement and a mentor to many young instructors.
He was coach of the Wings Team, Chief Air Judge at many Regional and National Competitions, and it was Jay's dedication to flight training that developed the very successful Instructor Council Seminars held at Ohakea over the years.
Jay's funeral will be held on Friday 1st May at 1100hrs at the Canterbury Aero Club.
