About the COPA for Kids Aviation Program

The mission of the COPA for Kids Aviation Program is to provide a motivational aviation experience, focusing on an introductory flight in an aircraft. These flights are provided free of charge by the local chapters ('Flights') of Canadian Owners and Pilots Association (COPA) to any youth aged 8 to 17 inclusive wishing to become a Junior Aviator.

How to Participate as a Junior Aviator:

  • register for the event on line HERE!
  • tell all your friends (this is a first-registered-first-reserved event!)
  • read the instructions and FAQ information in your confirmation email
  • show up on event day - BE ON TIME! There is plenty of stuff to do, so come EARLY
  • sign in when you arrive at the airfield and have your parents SIGN THE WAIVER
  • follow all instructions given to you; you will be assigned to a Pilot and plane
  • attend the Ground School
  • be ready in the 'on deck' area before your flight
  • accompany the assigned ground-crew to board your aircraft

Kudos and Comments  COPA For Kids

Thank you to everyone that helped make this event happen again this year! Our boys are 13 and 15 and had a fabulous time! Our 15 year old is seriously considering a career in aviation. We never would have even thought about this as a career before this event. We really appreciate this event and can't thank everyone involved enough, for volunteering your time, money, planes, and patience to put this event on! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Jonathan's plan is to try to become an air traffic control person (thanks to the two gentlemen we talked to at the education booth) and then make money to take flying lessons to become a pilot. Why not have two or three careers? :) Thank you for giving our son a vision and goal in life. He is completely taken with flying!"

What about the under-8 and over-17 crowd?

There is plenty for you to do, too! Make this a family and/or group event! There will be activities, static displays, exhibitors, food vendors and CYLW Community members on hand to answer questions and share how you can be more active and involved with your local airport!
