In partnership with AOPA, we have created The Cross Border Flying Operations Manual. This publication contains over 150 pages and includes everything you need to know to fly in either country. It is available on both the COPA and AOPA Web sites in the “member’s only sections” for free. It is also available in a paper version from either COPA or AOPA, for a nominal charge.
