Each year COPA awards deserving young Canadians funds to assist them in the early stages of learning to fly and becoming part of our general aviation community.

Created in memory of one of Canada’s foremost aviators and past COPA Board Chair, the Neil J. Armstrong Scholarship provides deserving students with the means to get their start.

The scholarship consists of two awards: One ab initio award worth $10,000 towards a private pilot licence (PPL) and a second worth $5000 towards higher licences or ratings. Both are available to qualified applicants aged 15-21.

Applications are now being accepted and must be received by COPA no later than March 1, 2019.
