On September 19th 2006, the United States Court of Appeals will rule against Harold A. Coghlan, the 2003 Southeast Region Civil Air Patrol Safety Officer of the Year, with the following conclusion in Case No. 06-11118


Coghlan has not shown that the NTSB committed reversible error when it determined that the statute of limitations in 28 U.S.C. § 2462 did not apply to his revocation proceedings.   Even if § 2462 were applicable, however, falsification of military records in which Coghlan was found to have engaged was adjudicated within the statute of limitations and was sufficient to sustain the NTSB’s decision upholding the FAA’s order of revocation.   Accordingly, we affirm the order of the NTSB and deny Coghlan’s petition.

  1. Coghlan is one of many felons that Mark Smith recently waived into the CAP. Not what many would consider a good mentor towards our youth.
