COPA is pleased to be launching the second year of our Members’ Choice Awards with some exciting new additions!  The awards program is a way for our members to recognize businesses and organizations that directly contribute to the success of general aviation across Canada. You can give well-deserved recognition to your favourite business by nominating them for an award in one of the following categories:

• Best Airport Management       • Best Pilot Supply Store   • Best Aircraft Maintenance

• Best Aviation Event     • Best FBO or Fuel Retailer   • Best Flight Training Unit

• Best Medical Examiner     • Best Airport Restaurant (see below)

New this year, the Members’ Choice Airport Restaurant contest will run summer-long from July to August 2018. COPA Members and restaurant representatives can nominate businesses until July 31, 2018 by emailing entries to lnagel@copanational.org or by filling out the nomination form on our website. Voting will be conducted online from July 1 – August 31, 2018 and winners will be recognized at the Members’ Choice Awards ceremony in the fall. ‘Airport Restaurants’ may include sit-down restaurants, chip trucks, canteens, lemonade stands, cafés, etc.

Additionally, members can earn a COPA hat from our new clothing line by logging visits to 5 participating restaurants! Sign-in to your COPA account online to log your visits and receive your prize. More details about the contest can be found by visiting https://copanational.org/en/memberschoice/.
