Reflecting on this very sad news, it’s hard to believe that the memories I have of Rod are now thirty years old. My time at MASUAS was pivotal in shaping the rest of my life and Rod was a huge influence. He was highly-skilled as pilot but – more importantly – he was warm, generous, approachable and wise as a person.
My deepest condolences to family and friends.
Godspeed Rod Newman, and thank you.
