Default Captain Gothard has flown West

It is with heavy heart that I report that Southern Air Captain Tommy Gothard has flown West, after a long battle with a medical condition.

Tommy, you were a true gentleman and an absolute pleasure to fly with. You will be missed.

Didn't know the man, but RIP from a fellow aviator.
