COPA for Kids
COPA For Kids aviation program provides — free of charge — an introduction for Canadian youth into the world of general aviation. To date, the COPA for Kids program has introduced over 23,000 young Canadians to General Aviation.
COPA Flights and COPA members who wish to fly young people are invited to read the Guide to the COPA For Kids Aviation Program and see the brochure and certificate that is available for download. Waiver Registration form only back to back. Volunteer pilots are also required to undergo a Vulnerable Sector Check through their local police station. Additional details are contained within the Guide.
This is your opportunity to nominate someone who has made significant contributions to the overall success of the COPA For Kids program. COPA Flights and individual COPA Members are invited to nominate outstanding COPA For Kids volunteers for the following awards:
• Event Coordinator
• Ground Support Volunteer
• Imagine award (recognizing efforts that go beyond the basic COPA For Kids flight)
Nominations will be accepted anytime but in order to be considered for any particular year they should be submitted by 31 December. Awards will be announced by the end of January. Nomination materials should include detailed descriptions of the accomplishments of the nominee, any relevant background information and letters of recommendation from fellow COPA members.
