Heinz Dziurowitz passed away

Recommended Posts

I have just saw that Heinz Dziurowitz passed away at 1:45 a.m. Wednesday, May 13, 2015, at Alton Memorial Hospital at the age of 59. He is probably best known for his 787 which was one of the best models for X-Plane when it was released. It was my first payware and is one of the add-ons that led the way for all the payware aircraft we have to day. He was also in two bands and you can find some videos of him performing on his wife's youth channelYou can find his obituary here


 


RIP Heinz. You will be truly missed by me and the rest of the community.

Very saddened to hear this. 

I bought some of his planes a few years ago.

I never knew Heinz, but do wish to express my condolences and prayers for his family and friends. That's far too young to be called home.

I think it's the wrong Heinz family member, wasn't the 787 dev a younger dude?

According to the condolence messages at the funeral home, this is the correct gentleman.

Although we never physically met Heinz my associates and I knew him well through his work on X-Plane models. He collaborated with us on several projects and we talked via email frequently. We knew him to be a kind and honorable gentleman and we at Shade Tree Micro Aviation will miss him deeply.
