I worked with Phil for over 20 years doing piloted simulation and flight test research. He taught me a lot. Phil was the consummate professional, while being friendly and respectful at the same time. Beyond his technical and piloting expertise, he demonstrated by example how to approach many situations at work and with others. I always valued his opinions and often bounced things off him for advice, but mostly, I will miss his smile, easy manner and friendship. So sorry I was not able to come to the gathering. My condolences to Phil's family.
