Grant Carrigan

Postby Saucepan » Fri Feb 3 2017, 11:23

It is sad news that I heard today that Grant Carrigan of Goondawindi helicopters, is no longer with us.

The circumstances are tragic. He has posted a few times here before and has set many a young pilot on their first step to commercial flying. Thoughts are with family and friends.

That is very sad news indeed. Grant has always been extremely helpful when I've been working in his neck of the woods.

Very sad to hear. I haven't caught up with him for a while, but I know life was always tough out there.
He was great at giving new and young pilots a hand up.

For those who knew Grant and wish to pay their respects his funeral will be at St Mary's Catholic Church in Goondiwindi at 11am this Friday. If you are unable to attend you can also PM me any messages of condolence for his family and I will pass them on.
