FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Friends and co-workers are remembering a flight instructor who was killed when his plane crashed over the weekend.
Channel 2's Lori Wilson spoke with a neighbor who said he spent hours with the pilot the night before.
Those who knew him best said Ernesto Arteaga-Membreno, 28, of Grayson, was a good pilot and a good neighbor. He was a flight instructor at flight school in Gwinnett County.
“We had a reveal party and that was really the first time we interacted, and he was just a really nice guy,” neighbor Erik Siders told Wilson.
He said Arteaga-Membreno had just bought the house next to him a couple of months ago.
Siders invited him to a party Saturday and got to know more about the young pilot, instructor and airplane mechanic.
