A celebration of life will take place on Friday for Will Hayworth and Zach McKillop, the two pilots who lost their lives in the Air Tindi plane crash on January 30.

Air Tindi confirmed a public celebration will take place on February 15 at 1:30pm at 125 Bristol Avenue (Hangar 1).

The company noted parking will be limited.


In lieu of flowers, GoFundMe pages have been set up to support Will and Zach‘s families.
