Canadian Team Vying For Rally Spot


COPA members Glen Tinckler and Rick Appleton are applying as a team for a spot to fly on the Ushuaia2USA Vintage Air Rally in March 2018.  It goes from the southern tip of Argentina, through 19 countries, and ends in Florida.  It’s a six-week trip of more than  7,000 miles in a 1930s Fairchild 24.

“We have made the short list of only 60 teams out of 675 that applied.  We are the only team from Canada and we need your support.” said Tinckler.

Members are asked to go to the team’s Facebook page to like and share it with as many of their own friends as possible.

“We will be sharing posts to this page from Vintage Air Rally and the more likes, shares and comments we get, the better our chances are of being in the final 15 teams,” he said. “Please also ‘like’ the Vintage Air Rally page from our Facebook page (by clicking on the “Learn More” button to get to their page).”

Every like, share and comment counts towards the team’s chances of being in the final 15 teams for the trip.   The final selection for the 15 teams takes place on Dec. 1, so time is of the essence.
