Aziz was the pilot of this plane; the picture was taken a few months ago. The 26-year-old flight instructor died last night in a crash that also killed two Seneca College students. Pictured below; Aziz (center) monitoring students in a flight simulator. Having spent some time with instructors and students of Seneca's flight program both on ground and in the air, I can say they were professional and very meticulous. This tragic event should not eclipse the thousands of flights over many years where nothing went wrong.

Lets hope the program - the only public college offering it in Canada - will recover. I would not hesitate a second if asked to fly with them again.
May Aziz, Cynthia and Lloyd - unfortunate casualties of one of man's greatest invention - rest in peace.
