Pat Cochrane

Coldstream, B.C.

BC/Yukon COPA members;

My name is Pat Cochrane and I am requesting your support in electing me one of the BC/Yukon COPA directors.

I received my Private Pilot License in 1990 and am current as of February 2018.  I own a 1/4 share in a Piper Turbo Arrow III which is hangared at Vernon BC and am a member of the Vernon Flying Club, COPA flight 65.

I have extensive Board and Committee experience.  I am in my twenty-second year as a Municipal Councilor, having served twelve years at the City of Vernon and the remainder at the District of Coldstream having chaired numerous committees as well as well as representing the community as Acting Mayor.

I find as a pilot that there is always more to learn, whether it is new upgrades in the airplane or changes to procedures.  To help me be an effective Board member I will draw on the knowledge and experience of BC and Yukon COPA members.

COPA has an important role in protecting and improving General Aviation in Canada.  I will use my board and committee background to help COPA be successful.

As a COPA board member, I will work co-operatively with fellow board members and senior staff to make the best decisions possible on behalf of COPA members.

Please take a few minutes to vote and make Pat Cochrane one of your choices for BC/Yukon director.

Thank you.
