They say he was found dead. My bet is heart attack.

I don't see anywhere that he was found dead....just the announcement of his death. Anyway, renumbering the reg. numbers is a great idea.

That also explains how they came up with the callsign Air Shuttle.

Re-registering their aircraft is a good idea, and a way to remember their roots....

RIP.

From the story:
"His core values continue to guide the Company today."

Exactly what values would those be? Paying some of the lowest wages in the industry?

The story I read in today's paper said that he passed after a "short battle with cancer."

It is unfortunate of Mr Risley's passing. I once had a room-mate who was a pilot for Mesa Air when it was under his control. My friend said that
Risley always said all pilots are cut from the same tu*d", and deserved less than what they thought they were entitled.
