COPA At AirVenture


The air show that attracts more Canadians than any other is on this week and COPA is at AirVenture 2018 in force. President and CEO Bernard Gervais, along with Manager of Communications and Government Relations Carter Mann and his wife Kirsten, Manager of Operations JC Audet and intern Lauren Nagel flew from Ottawa in three aircraft to represent the COPA office. COPA Flight Editor Russ Niles and Associate Editor Steve Drinkwater will join columnist Phil Lightstone to provide coverage of the events at Oshkosh that are important to Canadian pilots.

New this year is COPA’s joint sponsorship of a booth in the International Pavilion highlighting the collaboration with Transport Canada in the General Aviation Safety Campaign. Do stop by the booth to learn about this industry-first initiative aimed at understanding the root causes of aviation accidents and looking at practical ways of addressing them without simply adding more regulations. Input is sought and valued and it’s your opportunity to help shape the initiatives that will result from this wide ranging program.

Make sure you join us for the “Canadian Party” Tuesday from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. See you there.
