Helping us attain our XC potential

This website is dedicated to Pete Coad (1955 – 2013), a British team pilot who made a big impact at the KHPA and national levels, making the comp scene much more welcoming to new faces. BOS and Nationals pilots regard him firm but fair. Optimistic without being unrealistic, he is always able to get the best out of the available days. Known for his sense of humour and practical jokes, Pete’s briefings became legendary.

Pete Coad, KHPA
