Death of Capt. Roy Coulliette

Capt. Roy Coulliette at Lake Pleasant Airport.

Message from AZ Wing Commander Col. Martha Morris:

This morning, Capt. Roy Coulliette passed away in hospital with family around him. He was a member of the 388th Composite Squadron in Glendale and joined CAP in 1987. Coulliette was inducted into the Arizona Aviation Hall of Fame in 2004.

He was a fixture in our CAP glider program with more glider experience than anyone – more than 20,000 individual flights. Every time I flew with him, I learned many things. His concern always was our cadets and safety. He donated much time and expertise to our program and let us use his flight school gliders at the Lake Pleasant Airport, which greatly expanded our abilities to fly many cadets at the same time.

He will be missed.
