Thirty years of safely flying airliners were in large part due to the lessons I learned from Archie. Thank you. You live on in the minds and hearts of us all that read your work.

I remember as a new pilot, calling Archie to try to better understand some of the material I had purchased from him. He was kind, he was patient, and he was caring. What a gem of an aviation and safety expert, and what a gem of a human being.

As a professional pilot there were several occasions where Archie's lessons either by video or text were used to keep us abreast of the latest radar technology and how best to use it. The one thing Archie stressed at the end of his lesson and if we remembered nothing else was to never fly toward a shadow. Over forty years of airline flying that knowledge certainly helped to protect me and my passengers from harm when flying near severe weather. Archie, you made a difference! God Bless you Archie!
