COPA member since 1999, I am an aviation enthusiast, owner of a Cirrus SR22 (C-GNTU), I built a S45 Mystere (C-GPMD) and I am a member of the Board of Directors of St Mathieu de Beloeil airport (CSB3). I have my private license IFR / Night for over 40 years. At the professional level, I am Senior Vice-President of Technology for Canam Group (CIO) and I have always been very active in terms of innovation (see my resume). I have 5 children, all girls, from 23 to 33 years old. My oldest is an air traffic controller at Nav Canada and I have a son-in-law who is a Air Canada pilot. I wish to join COPA to become even more involved in the development of General Aviation to ensure its sustainability and to promote it among our youth. With the experience gained in managing a small airport and my experience in business, I think that I can provide COPA with sound advice and innovative ideas for change. Having to travel a lot in region, I realize the importance of keeping access to airports in these regions, I know several entrepreneurs whose choice of locations in region is based on the proximity of an airport.
Hoping that my application will be accepted,
