Vale Geoff Kitto

Postby BBwantok » Fri May 25 2018, 01:31

Sadly I have just heard of the passing away of pilot Geoff Kitto. He was 71, and only recently retired from aviation.
He began flying as a commercial pilot at the age of 17 if I remember correctly.
Those involved in the Ag industry in NZ will certainly know of him. Geoff gave me my first job in the industry as a loader driver many years ago.

There is a service for him on Tuesday 29th May, at the Balclutha Memorial hall, Balclutha, at 12.30.

A good man, many a good yarn enjoyed. Principled and ready to join with others to stamp out crap within the NZ aviation industry. Thoughts with Andy and family. Fondly remembered you are, Geoff... RIP.
