COPA Comments On Off-Airport Landings


Three off-airport landings in a week caught the attention of the national media this week and COPA was ready with some perspective and background to help non-pilots understand the training and skill that went into each of these successful events. Carter Mann, COPA’s Director of Government Affairs and Communications spoke with CBC Calgary for more than seven minutes this week to offer insights into the incident there involving a Piper Navajo along with an emergency landing on the Coquihalla Highway in B.C. and on a road in Outaouais, Quebec.
