Frank Reese, An instructor with a C-172 XP on Amphibs and a number of other aircraft, was injured in a crash recently that ended in the death of his student and serious though not life threatening injuries to Frank,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DuyBue ... e=youtu.be
Dick "The Dick" who had been one of the Go To Designated Examiners, gave up his examiner designation and Frank had been one of the Examiners who took up the slack.
Based at Orange County (MGJ) Airport, I would see and talk to Frank regularly. He and Sean, who worked for him had provided seaplane and tailwheel instructions for a number of years. I have taken on two of his students since the accident, but hope that Frank will be able to take them back soon.
