About Patrick Coughran
Patrick had aviation in his blood from the time he was born. His grandfather was a navigator on a B-17 in WWII, and his grandmother was one of the first female pilots in Mexico. Growing up, he was convinced he would get his pilot's license before his driver's license. An entrepreneurial journey forced Patrick to wait until 2021 to start working on his PPL. He is now 30 hours and four solos in, and is looking forward to the cross countries. He is learning to fly at CP Aviation in Santa Paula, CA.
