COPA and AOPA Keeping our Borders Open
COPA maintains close ties with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. Mark Baker, AOPA President, has a personal interest in maintaining our border as open and hassle free as possible because he regularly travels here by floatplane. Mark pledged to keep working closely with us on trans-border issues.
Recognizing the value of working closely together, COPA members have access to AOPA’s Pilot Information Center for assistance and information on flying in the US and AOPA members can also contact COPA staff for assistance with flying in Canada, including having access to our Guide to Cross-border Operations. COPA members also receive a $15 discount on the subscription to AOPA Pilot.
