Interested in helping to introduce aviation to others?
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.

Previously known as COPA for Kids and DiscoverGA, this modernized program combines our two longstanding programs into one with a single purpose of helping others explore the skies.

Insurance coverage for volunteer pilots and event organizers
COPA’s Discover Aviation program allows pilots to offer GA flight experiences with the peace of mind through top-up insurance. This top up provides an additional $2.5M of liability coverage on top of the pilot’s existing aircraft insurance policy – at no extra cost! To qualify, the pilot must be a current member of COPA, and the flight must be pre-registered using the form below. Pre-registration can be done at any time, right up until takeoff time.
