Changes at the helm


COPA Flight 60 met on 26 October 2010 to elect a new executive. The past executive had been in place for nearly 10 years, and both the Captain, Paul MacLellan and co-Captain, Dan McQuinn, wanted to take a step back to enjoy the view from the back seat.

As a result, Francine Desharnais was elected as the new Captain for Flight 60, while Gordon Boyce took over as co-Captain.Michael Doiron remains as navigator.COPA Maritimes Director Brian Chappell is also on the executive, and Paul and Dan will remain on the executive to support the new leadership.

COPA Flight 60 would like to thank Paul and Dan for reviving COPA Flight 60 nearly 10 years ago, and taking it to such heights.

Your service to COPA and to the broader Halifax region was – and continues to be – very much appreciated.
