Ray Gilechirst

The club was recently informed about the passing of Ray Gilchrist, a long time radio control flyer and a friend of the Young’s Point Radio Control Flying Club. Ray was a retired businessman with a love of radio control flying and the construction of radio controlled planes. He really enjoyed flying electric planes and was one of the first flyers in the area to focus on electric flying. His planes were admired for the quality of construction and attention to detail.  Ray was always willing to share his experience and thoughts with fellow flyers and could be counted on to volunteer his services whenever something needed to be done. He will be missed by his fellow flyers and the club would like to express our sympathies to his family.
