Duration: 4 Hours

COPA for Kids Aviation day will be held at Port Elgin Airport on Saturday, July 13 between 9am and 1pm and is FREE for young people between the ages of 8 and 17.

COPA (Canadian Owners and Pilots Association) local flight 172 based in Kincardine is overseeing the day's activities.

Participants will be given a short ‘ground school’ tour of a static display aircraft and be given explanations of the operation of an aircraft as well as the duties of the pilot.

Each participant will then be given the opportunity to fly in a small aircraft for a flight of approximately 20 minutes. A certificate and/or logbook will be provided to participants as a record of the flights.

All flight time is donated by local pilots who fly regularly from Port Elgin or from other local airports such as Wiarton, Hanover and Kincardine. The event will be supported by airport staff as well as by local volunteers.

An aircraft for static display has been provided by local pilot Randy Linton.
