The COPA Gala Dinner

by on Aug.15, 2011, under Flying

We gathered for cocktails and socialized after a full day at the airport. Dennis Haber had a sun burn from working the arrival line the day before. The gala dinner was served perfectly by the Cheyenne Mountain Resort and I must admit our dinners were good which is a miracle based on past experience with banquets for close to 350 people. Last year and this years COPA gala clearly are the exception. After dinner Andy opened the program and introduced a instrumental trio and five faculty, students and alumni from the Colorado Springs Conservatory. They entertained us with extraordinary talent and a show with a flying theme. We then heard from the wife, pilot and ATC controller who were involved in the incredible incapacitated pilot event that had occurred just a few months earlier. COPA awarded hero awards to those involved. We then visited the COPA Hangar for a night cap, which was jumping, and then hit the sack to be ready for a full day Saturday.
