The Canadian Owners and Pilots Association was founded in 1952 to speak as the unified voice for general aviation in Canada. Since then, COPA has grown to meet the ever-changing needs of the Canadian aviation community and became the recognized voice of general aviation in Canada.
The new COPA Safety Program plays an important role in mitigating the inherent risks associated with flying by helping pilots enhance their skills and knowledge, resulting in the potential decrease of incidents and accidents.
The COPA Flight Safety Foundation provides a variety of aviation safety related educational, scholarships and training services to the
Canadian general aviation community and relies exclusively on donations to fund these services.
