Donnie L. Cochran, First African-American Blue Angel in the US Navy and Corporate Aviation Manager at The Coca-Cola Company


Dougherty County School System Update

Captain Donnie Cochran, a retired Naval Aviator and Commander of the Blue Angels, spoke to students from Sherwood Acres Elementary, Albany Middle, and Albany High Schools on February 16. Cochran, who is from Pelham, became the first African American member of the Blue Angels precision flying team. The meeting was held at Albany High School and broadcast live to Sherwood Acres Elementary School in a video conference format.

Sixty students from Albany Middle and Albany High Schools met in the Albany High Media Center while the fourth graders at Sherwood Acres sat in their cafeteria to listen to Captain Cochran's presentation. He showed video and used flying analogies to demonstrate his message of using hard work, intense self-study, managing energy, and having fun to be successful in life. Later that day, Cochran visited Sherwood Acres Elementary and spoke to the fifth graders. He enjoyed taking questions from students and is intent on motivating students to reach for their dreams. He currently manages the Aviation Department at The Coca-Cola Company in Atlanta. Both students and staff enjoyed his powerful message and the example he sets through his impressive accomplishments.

THOMASVILLE - The first African-American Navy pilot to command the United States Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron (Blue Angles), Capt. Donnie L. Cochran, traveled from Atlanta to donate his Navy flight suit to the Jack Hadley Black History Museum on May 11.
Cochran toured the museum and was pleased to share his uniform so that area students can learn about the accomplishment of an African-American child. Cochran grew up on a farm near Pelham.
Currently, Cochran is employed at the Coca-Cola Aviation Department as the group manager, Flight Operation Support, and as a captain of its Gulf Stream V aircraft.

Looking out at a diverse audience of students, Cochran said he was proud the company he flies for today has one of the most diverse flight departments in the business, and that his career in business aviation was as exciting and rewarding as his service in the Blue Angels.
"We fly three Gulfstream aircraft and four Hawker aircraft at [my company]," said Cochran, "and it would be very difficult for my F/A-18 to intercept our G550. That's a fast, powerful business airplane."
