COPA For Kids 2018

Our 2018 event was another HUGE success. The weather was on our side, and the 27 kids who had flights were super excited. Some had never been in an airplane before and were still 'flying' after they landed. Thanks to our pilots, and many other volunteers who help to support this community initiative and make it run so smoothly.

Chris Willson leads off the program with a short ground school. Looks like an attentive audience!

Thumbs up! Jeff Douglass and his student are raring to take off.

Phil St. Jean gathers a group of youngsters before the flight. Safety is one of the important aspects covered.

 

TV coverage of 2017 Copa For Kids

Our annual COPA for Kids program continues to get bigger and better every year, and we typically have a waiting for young aviation buffs interested in participating in this free program. On August 19, 2017, a cameraman from Cogeco TV was on hand to capture the morning's activities. 

Cooperative weather, supportive pilots and an all 'round team effort were the hallmarks of the day. We hosted about 30 youngsters, offering them ground school, a brief flight and snacks. Here's a few snaps of the day! And check out the link to the TV coverage of the morning's event.
