COPA will have an even bigger presence at AirVenture 2018 and a big Canadian reunion is the centrepiece. COPA, in partnership with Magnes, AIG and McLarens Aviation will hold its annual Canadian Oshkosh party July 24 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the air conditioned Partner Resource Centre, across from Hangars A and C. It’s a chance to meet COPA staff and directors and mingle with pilots from across Canada who make the trek to AirVenture each year. COPA and its partners will provide the food and beer available along with numerous prize draws. Admission is free for COPA members. But there’s some serious work to do at AirVenture, too.

Thanks to a collaborative national effort to improve general aviation safety. COPA representatives will man a booth with Transport Canada Civil Aviation to promote the General Aviation Safety Campaign. The campaign was launched by COPA and TCCA in 2017 at the annual convention and trade show in Kelowna and is now in the early implementation stages. The booth will be located in the International Pavilion at AirVenture and anyone is invited to ask questions and take away information on the effort, which is aimed at reducing aircraft accidents by focusing on the frustratingly recurring main causes. But it’s not all about that serious work.
