COPA for Kids - September 26, 2015
The COPA for Kids Junior Aviator Program is operated by the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association. The mission of the program is to provide a motivational aviation experience, featuring a flight briefing and a demonstration flight in an airplane. The flights are provided by COPA pilots to any youth aged 8 – 17 wishing to participate. There is absolutely no cost to the participants and they will enjoy an unforgettable experience.
Many youth introduced to flying through COPA For Kids and its predecessor programs have gone on to get their pilot licences and are now flying young people themselves!
