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.
Join the Kamloops Flying Club to add your voice to the needs of General Aviation in Kamloops

One of the most iconic airplanes from the Second World War, the B-25 Mitchell “Maid in the Shade,” will be at the Kamloops Airport next week as part of the Arizona Commemorative Air Force Museum’s Flying Legends of Victory Tour.
The public will have the opportunity to climb aboard the B-25 Bomber and learn about its role in one of the most important periods in U.S. history.
The B-25 is an exceptionally rare aircraft as it’s one of 34 in the world that is still flying. The aircraft was used in America’s first large-scale bombing offensive in the Philippines.
