Family: Ariz. man in plane crash 'taught hundreds'

CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) - Family members say an Arizona man killed in a small-plane crash in Casa Grande had been flying since he was 14.

The Green Valley News reports (http://bit.ly/14KfCJg) that family says 52-year-old Stephen J. Stafford had taught hundreds of students to take to the air

Authorities say Green Valley resident Stafford and 65-year-old Del Steinbronn of Tucson died Wednesday when their twin-engine Beechcraft King Air E90 went down during landing north of a runway at Casa Grande Municipal Airport. The men, longtime friends, died on impact.

Stafford's fiancee, Sandra Komula of Green Valley, said he was a sales manager and consultant at Tucson Aeroservice Center.

The crash is being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board.
