I hold a private pilot licence with night and VFR OTT ratings. I’ve been a member of COPA since 1999. I am the co-owner of a Cessna 172, a member of the Ottawa Rockcliffe Flying Club, as well as of the AGAG (Association des Gens de l’Aviation de Gatineau) and Aviateur Québec. I sold my business about two years ago, so I can now say I am a rather young retiree with much time to spend on what has been a lifetime passion. Being both readily available and keen at undertaking such role have become the impelling forces that will most certainly help me move forward with a number of difficult issues still at task. The vast experience acquired during the past 25 years will help me perform efficiently as I sit on the Board of COPA. My aim is to make my time, my drive and my knowledge fully available to the management team of COPA so it can pursue its mission to promote and preserve the best interests of aviators. To sum it up, my wall-to-wall availability, my sharp interest for aviation, my thoroughness and my efficiency remain my best assets as a future member of your team.
