Hundreds of pilots, aircraft owners and other aviation enthusiasts from across Canada gathered in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, from June 23-25, for the return of the COPA National Fly-In and Aviation Exhibition.

The three-day event focused on community and the advancement of General Aviation in Canada with a range of seminars, exhibitors and social activities. Sponsors of the fly-in included The Magnes Group, McMillan, Airbly, McLarens Aviation, uAvionix, JetPro, Aviation Rou-Air, Mission Aviation Fellowship, Flight Club, CAE, Aero-Formatech, NAV CANADA, RE/MAX and The Personal.

In addition to the COPA team, the 2022 national fly-in was organized in large part by COPA Flight 160, also named Association des pilotes et propriétaires de hangar de Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu (APPH), which kicked off the festivities with a barbeque. Below are some of the scenes from this year’s event, photographed by Phil Lightstone.
