On Friday the 15th of February John Coyne lost his battle to Parkinson Disease.
John Started his flying in 1972/73 and got his first high flights off Green Mountain in 1973 in a Chandelle standard. He went on to become one of Colorado’s best pilots. He won many meets, and made many amazing flights in both distance and duration.
One such flight was in 1980 when John Flew from Golden to El Dorado Canyon and back in 3 hours and 37 minutes. Something we take as common place today.
John was also known for his many great and amazing stories about flights he had done and the great thing is they were all true.
He will be greatly Missed
