COPA for Kids

COPA For Kids aviation program provides — free of charge — an introduction for Canadian youth into the world of general aviation. To date, the COPA for Kids program has introduced over 23,000 young Canadians to General Aviation.

The COPA For Kids Program is sponsored by AIG Canada, the underwriters for the COPA VIP Gold and VIP Silver Aviation Insurance programs and delivered by our national network of COPA Flights.

COPA Flights and COPA members who wish to fly young people are invited to read the Guide to the COPA For Kids Aviation Program and see the attractive brochure and certificate that is available for download. Waiver Registration form only back to back.

There are dozens of COPA for Kids events organised each year throughout Canada.
Find an event in your area including any of the Medicine Hat's by consulting the Events calendar.

To register your child for a COPA for Kids event, please contact the our local COPA Flight 171 Chapter prior to putting on an event.

Flying Adults
COPA Air Meet Insurance is designed to protect COPA National and the Flight’s liability and legal defense as organizers of Fly-outs, fly-ins, or any events organized by a COPA Flight. In addition the COPA Air Meet Insurance provides excess (top off) insurance for the COPA For Kids Aviation Program.  However, this “top off” insurance does not apply to introduction flights to adults. Our insurer and COPA National expects the COPA Flight will apply due diligence to ensure all pilots participating in a COPA Flight event involving the flying of adults as passengers are in accordance to the CARs and additional minimum recommendations:

  • Current Pilot License or Permit, with passenger carrying privilege, for the aircraft being flown

  • Valid Medical Certificate

  • Transport Canada recency requirements including minimum of five takeoffs and landings within previous six months in category and class of aircraft to be used

  • Aircraft must be Canadian registered

  • All documentation required by Transport Canada on board of aircraft, including proof of public liability insurance and property damage applicable aircraft to be used

  • Aircraft must be authorized for carrying passengers

  • Minimum Combined Single Limit Liability of 1M$, including Passengers
