Gone West: Alexander 'Sandy' Hill

Founded And Managed The Master Instructor Program Along With His Wife

Aviation education legend, SAFE charter member and proud Marine, G. Alexander 'Sandy' Hill passed away at his home Thursday after a long illness.

Among many contributions to aviation, Sandy, with his wife and partner JoAnn formed and managed the Master Instructor Program, which celebrates 25 years and over 1800 total MCFI certifications in 2020. Together they also revitalized the General Aviation Awards program in the early 2000s and motivated our industry ever-greater professionalism and excellence.

A YouTube video highlights the amazingly productive professional contributions of Sandy and JoAnn throughout their careers together.

"He will be missed by all his friends at SAFE and throughout our aviation family," SAFE Executive Director David St. George said in an email announcing Hill's passing. "We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the family at this difficult time. A Marine Guard funeral ceremony is planned for Jan 28th, followed by burial in Fort Logan National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the Semper Fi Fund."
