COPA’s youth program is an initiative run by COPA’s next generation of pilots. Our mission is to bring together pilots aged 16-35 to foster a sense of community and advance projects that benefit young pilots.
We have three main initiatives thus far:
- “GROUNDED” a new web series brought in partnership with Ottawa’s COPA Flight 8 that discusses aviation topics of interest with experts in the field. Sessions occur bi-weekly on Wednesdays. You can learn more and register to participate here.
- Youth Campouts. Pilots are invited to arrive in advance to COPA Conventions and camp under wing, enjoying free food and great company.
- Social Media Community. Join our online community and even have your content featured on our social media pages. Join our Facebook group, follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn, and send your aviation photos, videos, and other content to Lnagel@copanational.org for a potential feature.
If you are interested in getting more involved or have ideas about how COPA can better serve our young pilot members, please send an email to Lnagel@copanational.org.
