Natl Gay Pilots Assoc Exec Dir Dies In Plane Crash

Mon Oct 27, 2014 11:02 pm

My friend and fellow aviation fanatic, Steven Moore, died in a single engine plane crash today in Boulder, CO. His Mooney crashed shortly after takeoff. Steven was Executive Director of the National Gay Pilots Association and a First Officer at United Express.

Steven was an amazing person and even better pilot. This industry that we know and love has suffered a huge loss today.

Godspeed Steven.

He was an amazing person. He was my flight instructor at Lansing Airport before he moved to Florida and ended up working for ExpressJet. He will be missed, I still remember flying with him and the fun we had doing traffic patterns and other maneuvers. RIP Steve!

A real loss for the gay aviation community. Extremely sad to see this happen.

At least he died doing what he loved and suffered no pain. I hope the best for his associates and family at this time of deep sorrow and loss.
