Tribute to CASA inspector Stephen Guerin
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority has paid tribute to its respected Adelaide based flying operations inspector Stephen Guerin.
Mr Guerin, 56, lost his life in an aircraft accident at Renmark late on Tuesday 30 May 2017.
Two other pilots tragically lost their lives in the accident involving a Cessna Conquest aircraft operated by Adelaide based charter operator Rossair.
Mr Guerin joined CASA in April 2008 and worked as a flying operations inspector and acted as a team leader on a number of occasions.
Prior to joining CASA Mr Guerin worked for a number of aviation operators as a pilot.
Mr Guerin was observing a check flight being conducted by Rossair as part of routine safety work undertaken by CASA.
Mr Guerin is remembered by CASA colleagues as passionate about aviation, meticulous about safety and widely respected.
He was active in community service and known as a "true gentleman".
The accident is now subject to an investigation by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau. CASA will assist this investigation as required.
