Freedom to Fly Fund

Your Freedom to Fly is worth defending

The Freedom to Fly Fund was created to guarantee that COPA would have the resources to take on emergency actions, legal or otherwise, in the defense of the Canadian Freedom to Fly. This Fund is made available through the generous donations of COPA members and supporters, to ensure that we continue to enjoy our freedoms, such as the right to have an airstrip on your property. Uses of the fund include legal actions such as the federal jurisdiction issue that was successfully brought before the Supreme Court of Canada in 2009-2010.

The Freedom to Fly Fund has as a goal to maintain a ready, $1 million reserve to allow COPA the means to wage these battles in defense of our members and our Freedom to Fly. We need your continuing support to keep the war chest in shape and provide a reserve. You can contribute on an individual basis at any time or when renewing your membership. We also encourage our Flights to organize fund raising events to help replenish the reserve.

Let’s all do our part to ensure that it remains in place for future challenges.
