    Did a quick search online - Igor Novodran (should his name be added in the thread title?) previously coached British skater Harry Mattick in Pittsburgh, PA through the 2012-13 season. He also was listed as Amani Fancy's singles coach last season before she switched to pairs.

    He was a guest coach in Newark, Delaware last summer: http://www.pondfsc.com/news/summer2013guestcoachescampatthepond

    From a 2011 article about Mishin's camps in Europe: http://www.absoluteskating.com/index.php?cat=articles&id=2011mishingachinski
    Condolences to his family, friends, and anyone in the skating community who knew him.

    Wow, sudden sad news, my sympathies to his family and friends - this news follows the death of another skating coach, Boris Uspenski, who died last week in the UK. He had been suffering from cancer for quite a while http://www.iceskating.org.uk/node/6827

    I have met Igor Novodran at several occasions, he was a very nice man. How sad.

    A skating coach/aviation enthusiast. I respect his diverse interests. It could be a while before they determine the cause of the crash. Eventually they will publish the investigation results.

    Still trying to process this - can't believe we won't be seeing him again and can't imagine the shock to his family. So sad.
