Air Canada, CAE name eight recipients of 2023 Captain Judy Cameron Scholarship. Amongst them, Mia Cochran of Nort Bay.

Mia Cochran is a North Bay girl. Her father is a Professor at Canadore College. She is in her third year of the Aviation Program at Mt Allison University  in Moncton.

Mia had her first flight at Oshawa - after she convinced her parents to drive her there to participate in Girls Take Flight event. At that event, she won an introductory flight that we arranged for her to have in North Bay. After that Ron took her for a flight in our Piper Cub floatplane  and she was “hooked”.

Turns out her grandfather , Jack Cochran ,was a pilot, and was a local Air Traffic Controller in North Bay for many years . Jack was a partner in the North Bay Flying Club and a frequent flier of their C-172. 

Mia’s choice of Mount Allison for her training was easy as they have a recognized soccer team, and soccer is her second passion after aviation. This past spring shortly after she received her PPL ,she inquired if Ron knew how she could get her float rating. As Ron has his Commercial License, he was able to help out and by July Mia was a newly minted seaplane pilot.This winter she is working on her Commercial licence, and year 4 she will get her multi engine and IFR ratings. We think she is a pretty special girl, and obviously Judy Cameron (main judge of the Air Canada Award) thinks so too.
