It is with great sadness that we share the news of the death of one of our students.
Around 8 am today, Luke Teale-Sinclair was on his way to the Australian Centre for Mission Aviation on his motorbike, when he was involved in a fatal accident. One of our instructors was prompted to take a different route to travel to work today and was at the scene of the accident within a couple of minutes of it occuring. Luke was treated by paramedics but could not be saved.
Luke was 25 years old and in his second year of aircraft engineering training. Luke’s parents work for MAF and he grew up in Papua New Guinea, stating on Facebook that his ‘home’ was Mount Hagen. Luke’s goal was to work as an engineer for MAF in PNG once his training was completed here. Luke’s vibrancy and passion for life made him a popular and well-loved member of the student body. He will be sorely missed.
We covet your prayers for his family, for his girlfriend, his fellow students and staff here at ACMA and his wider circle of friends around the world.
