The 2017 Convention and Tradeshow in Kelowna, B.C. was a resounding success. Thanks to COPA Flight 36 (Kelowna Flying Club), and the work of the volunteer organizing committee for their hard work in putting on the event.

The beautiful Okanagan weather set the stage for a record attendance of:

  • 450 Delegates
  • 120 Aircraft
  • Almost 700 members of the public touring the static display area at the airport
