The Penticton Flying Club is again offering our COPA For Kids Program this spring. This is a nation wide program sponsored locally by the Pentiction Flying Club Flight #50 chapter of the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association. This annual free event is open to all young folks between 8 and 17 years of age.
The participants will be provided a “ground school” session with a static display aircraft and a pre-flight walk around with a local pilot, who will explain various aircraft parts, flight control surfaces and aviation terminology.
The participants then load up into club members’ aircraft for a 20 minute flight around the valley. All pilots have donated their time, fuel and aircraft in order to introduce our young folks to aviation.
This event will run at Princeton Airport terminal building on April 27 beginning at 9:30 a.m.
An information brochure and registration form is available on line at www.princeton.ca or at Princeton Town Hall. For more information call the Recreation and Culture Office at 250-295-6067. A maximum of 50 kids will be able to participate at this event. Early registration is key to participation.
Every participant must have a completed registration/waiver form signed by parent or guardian prior to the flight.
Register early to ensure a spot.
