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.

 

Spring is in the air.. Time to wake up your bird and get out flying.

This year we will be organizing regular fly-out dates for club members who are available to participate. We have around 20 planes in the club presently with a lot of empty seats so no excuse for any member wishing to participate to get a ride. The general fly-out calendar will be updated shortly with all of the usual fly-out breakfasts available during the spring to fall time frame. The flying club should be just that... Getting out to interesting places with group participation.

 

COPA for Kids Event

This years event will be held on June 7, 2015. We will be introducing a few changes in procedure to expedite the process to ensure all registered participants will get their rides in a timely fashion. Spread the word around for the event.

Education Events

Monte has arranged for two educational events for our next two meetings. NAV Canada from Vancouver will come up on April 13 and give us an in depth discussion about mainly VFR transit through Class C airspace surrounding Vancouver. It will be a very informative/interactive session. Spread the word around to all flyers in our area. This talk will begin at 19:30 hrs to accomodate his return to Vancouver in a timely fashion.

On May 4 we will have Ed Ratuski and a member of the NAV Canada team in the FIC come and talk about airport procedures at CYKA. It is getting to be busier with increasing commercial traffic and increased GA traffic. We do have to work together to ensure safe and efficient operations at the airport. Again please spread the word to all flyers in the area.

Rust remover in Vernon

Vernon's annual rust remover is on April 25. Registration is at 08:00 at the clubhouse and sessions start at 09:00. $25 fee includes coffee, lunch and 4 training sessions.

 

 

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.
