In Memory of Ernest “Ernie” A. Bleiweiss

August 9, 2014

Anyone who got to know Ernie would never forget his smile and his laugh as well as his New York accent. I first had the pleasure of meeting him at the field many years ago on a Saturday morning. He pulled into the field in a car that looked like it just came out of a dealership (Ernie kept his cars in mint condition). On the backseat was his plane and his flight box was in the trunk. Most of Ernie’s planes were crude, but they all flew. Soon, Ernie became part of the Saturday morning crew who showed up before 8 am and left by noon. There is no question that Saturday mornings will not be the same as Ernie’s big smile and laughter will surely be missed.
