I just learned that a friend and a mentor, Captain Tom Cochran passed away a few weeks ago. I flew with Tom at HeliFlite Shares in NYC. Tom taught me much about the Bell 430, flying in New York, and how to be a professional aviator. I did not know him well on a personal level, but on a professional level there were not many of his caliber. Tom was very straightforward and honest. He would not back down if he was right, but would admit when he was wrong. We could use a few more like him. If anyone has any information on where to send flowers or donations, please let me know. Rest in Peace Tom. Blue Skies and Tailwinds forever. Gene

Tom was a genuinely nice guy and a excellent pilot, I flew with him back in the late 80's at Damin, RIP...

Tom was a great stick, and a good man... Lost track of him after the Damin Demise. He was a stablizing personality among the young lions; he never got rattled, and I only saw him truely pissed off once over about five years. Our small band of gypsies should keep his place by the fire. No one else could fill it anyway. Fair Skies and Cool Breezes........ JC
