New Website Launch
Welcome to COPA’s new website
Take a few minutes to check out new and updated features
The new website is clean, easy to navigate, and allows users to quickly navigate to the information and resources that matter most. Our new website also gives more visible recognition to the aviation-related businesses who support our organization through the Corporate Membership program as well as allows businesses certain areas to purchase advertising.
The new Events page combines the material formerly found in On the Horizon as well as our members’ regularly scheduled events into one easy to use page with different tools, which allow the user to filter events by category, venues, province, and airport. Additionally, the Google Map interface provides a visual guide to the many aviation-related events around the country. If you or your organization has an upcoming event, you would like to see listed, be sure to submit it to us.
All of the different aviation resources from the old website have been updated and combined into one easy-to-find menu called “Flying in Canada.” Here you will find resources on learning to fly, aircraft operations, licensing, medical issues, money topics, and COPA Flights. The new Places to Fly offers a user-friendly portal to find up-to-date information on airports and aerodromes in every province and territory. Want to find the best $100 hamburger? Need to plan your fuel stops for your cross-country? Visit our Places to Fly for all of that and more.
While you’re at it, take the time to update the information on your airport’s listing – the new Places to Fly is designed so that our community members can keep their information current, and even create new listings!
In addition to our website, COPA’s social media presence is wildly gaining in popularity. Our Facebook page is up and running and is playing an important role in advertising updates, events, and COPA initiatives such as the Flight School Campaign, COPA for Kids, and news from around the Canadian GA family. If you or your COPA Flight are on Facebook, make sure to like our page @COPAnational and share within your own networks. For the flying photographers out there, be sure to send your entries to us for the Membership Card Photo Contest – we are featuring the entries as our Facebook cover photo and the photo with the most likes at the end of the year will become the background photo on the next years’ membership card.
Over the next few months, we will be rolling out our YouTube channel and Instagram account in order to better connect with younger, newer pilots and encourage them to become part of Canada’s largest aviation community. If you would like some advice on how to get the most out of your social media, give us a call – we’d be happy to help!
