Actually, I didn’t have much to instruct him, so the Civil Aviation Authority authorized him to shorten his training. Among other things, I also familiarized him with the Andula, i.e. the Antonov AN 2 biplane.Vlastimil Dvořák statement
Dvořák, a trainer, and friend further added,
“Petr Paces was a person who never fight with anyone and he used to do lots of pranks and was an entertaining guy. He first flew Fighter airplanes, later Boeing Jets over the oceans. His dream was to fly a historical aircraft like a Hawker Hurricane Mk. IV aircraft (British single-seat fighter aircraft of the 1930s–40s) which he did but Unfortunately, it killed him.”Vlastimil Dvořák statement
