COPA Discover Aviation program
Have you always wondered what it’s like to fly? The COPA Discover Aviation Program has been developed to welcome our friends, community-members and future pilots into the world of aviation by providing a free discovery flight in a small airplane and in encouraging interest to join Canada’s growing flying community.
Aviation is exciting and can provide once-in-a-lifetime experiences. As a “pilot for a day” you’ll experience an enjoyable flight that may give you a new perspective on the world. The discovery flight will be conducted according to federal regulations. In addition, no aerobatic maneuvers will be performed.
Through COPA’s Discover Aviation program, pilots volunteer their time and talents, along with their personal aircraft providing free flight experiences to new friends and future pilots. This modernized program combines our two longstanding programs, COPA for Kids and DiscoverGA, into one single purpose of helping others explore the skies.
COPA is the hosting body of the COPA Discover Aviation events happening all across Canada. We represent nearly 15,000 pilots and 200+ chapters (known as COPA Flights) located in all 10 provinces and one territory. Our members are aviation enthusiasts of every age group, including many airline and commercial pilots, engineers, business people–even astronauts. They enjoy all types of aircraft, including experimental machines, drones, fixed-wing aircraft, gliding planes, helicopters, and floatplanes.
