Title: Phil Kalenowsky has passed.
Post by: Dano on May 14, 2014, 09:47 AM
It is with sadness I must share that our friend and fellow flyer has passed away.

I was just reaching out to him this morning to see if he'd help do some demos with me this weekend at Reno kite festival for kids. No answer on his cell or home was odd, i googled him and found this...

He was a great guy and will be missed!

Aw, that's so sad. Phil was a unique guy. Really enthusiastic and fun. Only ran into him every few years at events, but he always had an undeniable energy and good humor.

RIP, Phil.

Maybe Chilese can post the picture of Phil flying a Rev one handed while hula-hooping.  :)

I've been living in Texas for some time and thought I'd reconnect with Phil after I return to the area next month. He was the person who got me into flying Revs, heck, into kite flying. I was saddened to learn after so much time that he's gone.  :-[
