“As some of you may know, we lost a member of our jet racing family on Sunday, September 18th during the final jet race. Aaron Hogue joined our family 2 years ago and had already become an integral part of the jet class, serving as a pilot, sponsor, and mentor to other jet pilots. We are heartbroken for his loss and are asking for prayers for his family during this unspeakably rough time. Out of respect for his family, I am asking everyone to refrain from posting photos, video, or questions related to the incident.
I am part of the investigation and will work hard to have the results as quickly as possible.
We love you and miss you, Aaron. Blue skies and tailwinds, my friend.”
