Fournier was at the controls of the Eurocopter AS365 (9M-IGB) Dauphin 2 helicopter aircraft when it went down at about 4.45pm.

The aircraft was operated by aviation company Cempaka Aviation.

Fournier’s wake saw friends and associates, including those from Singa­pore, attending. However, media personnel were barred from the wake, which ended at about 10.30pm.

A memorial will be held today (Thursday) starting at 9.30am, at the same venue. Hailing from Minnesota, the United States, Fournier leaves behind a wife and four children.
