Dear COPAMA Members and Friends,

October 11th Meeting - MMS Aviation - Mr. Dwight Jarboe

Our first meeting of the fall will have Mr. Dwight Jarboe of MMS Aviation presenting an update on Missionary Maintenance Services. Dwight is stepping down as the head of MMS Aviation and you may see more about thatannounced transition here on their website. We also plan to present him with a check to support their AMT apprentices who are working toward A&P certification and service in missionary aviation.

Please join us at Lane Aviation, 4387 International Gateway at 5:30 for the social gathering, a light dinner around 6:00 and the presentation immediately after.

The nominations for next years board member candidates will also occur at this meeting. Earl Redmond, Jeff Gruber, Gene Sprang and Lowell Dowler have positions opening up for re-election. If you are interested in supporting COPAMA at a higher level by becoming a board member, please send us an email at and we'll provide you more information on duties and getting on the November ballot.

November Meeting moved to the 1st due to Election Day.

As an early notice, we're moving the November presentation by the FAA Safety 
Team on "FAA Enforcement Policy" to Tuesday the 1st. We will hold our own Board Member elections a week before the nation decides it's new President and other members of Congress.

COAGO 2016 - Another great fundraiser!

We held this fall's Central Ohio Aviation Golf Outing on Friday September 9th at Kyber Run Golf Course. It was the 14th year for the event co-hosted by COPAMA and the Professional Pilots Association (PPA) to raise funds for the COPAMA Scholarship Fund.

We've posted the COAGO 2016 Report so you may visit the link above, check out the final results and see some of the photos taken by the GE Volunteers and others at the Outing. Team photos are located on the Photo Gallery page

Thanks to all the sponsors and 135 players for their support of the AMT Students who are recipients of the fund.

The Social Hour will begin at 5:30 followed by a buffet style dinner and an entertaining presentation by Mr. Bill Albers of the Champaign Aviation Museum.
