Calling all young aviators! – COPA for Kids August 23

COPAThe Prince Edward Flying Club will help young people get a taste of the sky this Saturday with the COPA program.

The Canadian Owners Pilots Association (COPA) encourages people aged eight to 17 years to explore aviation. Free of charge, this is an annual national program provided by members.

COPA-for-Kids-logoThe local COPA for Kids Program will be held at the Prince Edward Flying Club (at Picton Airport).

One especially exciting aspect of this program is the opportunity for young aviators to get a bird’s eye view of flying from the cockpit of an airplane.

The program involves a brief ground school, walk around a plane, and flight in which participants will experience start-up, take-off, cruising, landing and shut down.

Start time is 9 am and the program lasts one and a half to two and a half hours. Interested participants must pre-register. Contact Scott DeMille, T: 613 399-5110. Rain Date: August 24.

All COPA pilots are licensed by Transport Canada, and their aircraft registered by Transport Canada. Prince Edward Flying Club is part of COPA Flight 53, a three-club partnership that includes the Belleville Flying Club, and Oak Hills Flying Club in Stirling.
