Why join COPA?
When you join the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association, you are supporting a greater cause on top of personal benefits. There is no-one-size fits all reason our community of 13,000 pilots and aircraft owners join, however, many of the reasons include:
- Supporting a bright future for general aviation
Our goal is to change the way people think about general aviation and dispel myths about who flies recreationally and how.
- Meet new, experienced, and/or aspiring pilots
Regardless of your current status as a pilot, meet other aviation enthusiasts with similar interests through our fly-ins.
- Access critical information for local advocacy efforts
We support our members, and your local advocacy efforts, with powerful communication tools, economic impact studies, and general aviation reports.
