Ben Glattstein

29. January 1982 – 25. November 2010

Ben was an amazing friend, mentor, and instructor to many of us. He has contributed all of his passion for the Eagle Sport Aviation Club and continued to promote sport aviation. He has always encouraged and supported new and young children to become involved in aviation, he has always found new avenues and opportunities, and he has lived each and every moment with all of us.

Since Ben’s arrival in the US in January of 2004 he has inspired hundreds of people everywhere he went. He has promoted a passion for aviation to his students, has made everyone smile and laugh, and has been there for every one of us.

There are countless great stories and moments to remember. As a best friend, as a mentor, and as a fellow club member, we will always honor his spirit and continue his journey for aviation and passion to introduce young children to the fun and challenges of aviation.

“To most people, the sky is the limit. To those who love aviation, the sky is home”
