We want to thank our Central Ohio Aviators and Sponsors for their great support of this year's event.


COAGO 2015 - Beautiful Day, Not So Beautiful Ending!

Every year in September, Central Ohio aviators look forward to this day of golf with their friends and coworkers. The event, which is co-hosted by the Professional Pilots Association (PPA), has been the main fundraiser for the COPAMA Scholarship Fund which provides monetary awards for tuition and testing fees of local student Aviation Maintenance Technicians. Your participation helps the event proceeds keep the fund ready to help those who request testing scholarship help for next year and other Youth Aviation activities.

COAGO 2014 briefing

The 2015 Central Ohio Aviation Golf Outing (COAGO) was held on Friday, September 11th At Kyber Run Golf Course, just outside Johnstown, Ohio. This was the 13th year that the Outing has been co-hosted by COPAMA and the Professional Pilots Association (PPA) to raise funds for the COPAMA Scholarship Fund.

Roughly 128 players attended this year's Event. After a moment of silence to observe the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the golfers started off with flags adorning their carts on a spectacular morning.

An oncoming storm front forced an abbreviated lunch, award ceremonies and prize raffle. Due to the haste, an unintentional clerical error occurred during the determination of 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams. The issue was resolved before the end of the outing but the storm made retakes of the award photos impossible. The raffle was concluded under the course's shelter with golfers, volunteers and raffle prizes all trying to keep dry.
