Coastguard Air Patrol Volunteer of the Year – Murray Miskelly – Coastguard Northland Air Patrol
Murray has participated in almost every operational callout the Unit has received and is at every training session and fundraising event. He continually strives to both motivate all unit members, and connect other community organisations to get the best results for Coastguard. Murray is a qualified flying instructor and spends considerable time with non-pilot members, teaching them the basics of operations in the aircraft so all crew are familiar with cockpit processes. Murray encourages members to have a great involvement, and maintains extremely high professional standards.
