Registration Open for Montebello Magic


Registration is now open for the annual Montebello Magic Challenger Winter Rendezvous at the historic Fairmont Montebello Resort between Ottawa and Montreal Jan. 26-28. The 28th annual event draws dozens aircraft to the Ottawa River. As many as 100 aircraft and 300 participants have attended. While the fly-in is officially a gathering of owners of Challenger ultralights, it draws aircraft and pilots of all types and has become one of the premiere winter flying events in Canada. COPA has become formally involved with the planning and organization of the event.

While much of the weekend is about socializing with like-minded aviators and enjoying the luxurious ambiance of the resort, there are also seminars and workshops covering technical and airmanship topics along with a trade show and banquet. The main hotel fills quickly but there is a host of other accommodations nearby that have earned high marks from previous participants.
