I was hired as a Pilot for Allied Helicopters in 1980 with minimal experience and flew for them till 1987. Chief Pilot Kenneth Turner and Mr. York took me under their arms and taught me things Pilots nowadays haven't even heard of. Mr. York was extremely knowledgable, patient and helpfull. After I left the Company, I still was in contact with him,we spoke regularly on the phone and discussed helicopter events. Even at advanced age, he was still sharp about issues and we always had fun talking. He was an old school gentleman, excellent Pilot, a mentor, and a friend. I miss him.
