George Cambron 1953-2004
UPS B-767 Captain

When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the Earth with your eyes turned skyward - for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.

Only these words from Leonardo DaVinci could possibly capture the spirit and passion George Cambron had for sport aviation. George was one of those rare individuals who just seemed to have a natural ability to fly; and fly well. His aerobatics were graceful and elegant, and were performed with unmatched precision and skill.

But George was much more than a gifted aviator. He was a gentle, kind, intelligent, and loving soul. His love of flight and love of his family were immeasurable. To say that George gave back to the aviation community would truly be an understatement. Countless individuals were able to experience a once-in-a-lifetime flight in the most exciting planes imaginable, simply because George had an open seat to offer. George made a positive and lasting impact on the lives of all who knew him.

On March 25, 2004 George was killed in the crash of his Mig-17 while enroute from Roswell, New Mexico to Phoenix, Arizona. The NTSB determined probable cause as "loss of aircraft control for undetermined reasons resulting in impact with desert terrain". We will never know exactly what happened, only that we lost a true friend. George will forever live on in our thoughts and dreams.
