A free airplane ride? Yes way!! We are proud to say that our COPA for Kids event has become quite popular in the past few years!
Our pilots fly an average of 100 kids each year, and in 2012 our Flight boasted the third most kids flown that year in Canada! What can we say - our C4K pilots are awesome... and love taking kids up for their first flights! Of course, we can't forget our wonderful ground helpers who organize, feed and make sure the kids and their adults are safe at all times!
The program is available to anyone between the ages of 8-17. All we require for participation is a completed registration form and a phone call
to book a time slot. Most of our pilots can take up to 3 passengers at a time, so bring your friends, siblings or cousins along for a flight with you!
Flights are about 15-20 minutes long, depending on the route of the day. Participants are welcome to bring a camera in the plane with them.
All of our pilots are experienced flyers and can answer any questions you have about flying.
Our COPA for Kids day has been cancelled for 2020.
Call Jenn at 519-270-4436 to book your time slot, then print off and fill in one registration form per participant.
Bring the completed registration form(s) to the airport about 20 minutes before your scheduled flight time and check in at the registration table in the main terminal. If you have a logbook from previous years, be sure to bring that along for your pilot to sign!
After the flight, participants recieve a certificate of participation, special "set of wings" pin, fun handouts and are invited to join us for a hotdog and pop to complete the experience. Don't forget to take a photo with your pilot!
