The Kamloops Flying Club promotes general aviation activities as well as opportunities for continued education and social engagement with fellow aviators

Welcome to the Kamloops Flying Club

The Kamloops Flying Club has been a focus of aviation activities in Kamloops for the past 40+ years. In 2000 we became  COPA Flight 82 with our association with the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association. Through this relationship we have been involved with the COPA for Kids events which introduces our youth to the world of general aviation.

Every year we engage our fellow clubs in and around the province to host several fly-in events as well as fly-outs to their hosted events.

Membership in the club is $60/year. Our meetings are the first Monday of the month at 20:00hrs that is not a statutory holiday. If we are having a speaker meetings start at 19:30hrs. Notice of speakers will be emailed and noted on the Flying Events Calendar.

 

Kamloops Flying Club Facebook Page set up for members

Members wishing to be placed in the closed group email Blake, Tyler, or Kieran. The point of the page is to allow more convenient communication between members planning flights and looking for passengers or other planes to fly with. Please join to allow for more joint flying adventures with club members.

 

Fall Breakfast Fly-in a Success

The weather was spectacular on Sunday for our fall breakfast. We had about 12 + planes arrive from a variety of locations including Alberta and the lower mainland. Our new grill equipment worked very well offering a great breakfast.

 

63 COPA for Kids Flown

We had an overwhelming response for the event this fall. In total we flew 63 youth using 6 aircraft. With a large number of participants enrolling within 24-48 hrs of the event coupled with quite a few showing up without pre-registration led to some degree of disorganization in processing the participants. In the end we dd fly 63 but a handful did not get the opportunity. I have asked the parents to contact us to arrange a time to offer them the flight in the next several weeks. We apologize for the confusion and will address this for future events.

We look forward to a stronger and more active club this year.  Please come out to offer your support to the club.

COPA for Kids

Associated with the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association  we offer youth between the ages of 8-17yrs an opportunity to experience flight in a typical general aviation aircraft.

We will be setting the Spring 2015 date early in the New Year.

To attempt to improve the organization of the event we will be limiting the total number of participants to 60. All participants must email to reserve a spot and a check-in time so as to minimize waiting time.

Visit the copaforkids.org website for more information and to download the registration/waiver form to bring to the event. Email Blake at cj4me@shaw.ca to reserve a spot.
