A very sad day indeed for aviation.

I have been following intermittently Avcen's development through the Internet as I thought it could be a trend setter as the idea is great and with so much potential.

I hope Avcen recovers from this terrible tragedy and keeps the project alive and full fill the dreams of Michael Dacre...a pioneer indeed.
