Our COPA for Kids event is unique in that all flights are in floatplanes. Kids are initially introduced to the science and general mechanics of the plane by the pilot and are then treated to a flight in the co-pilot's seat. Although the flights are free, pre-registration is required. This event is made possible by the volunteer effort of our members as pilots, dock handlers and dispatchers.
Pilots interested in participating should contact Hal Logsdon. Pilots must be on floats, have an intercom and headphones for each passenger, and be current and have all required equipment on board. We will operate flights at 9 am, 10 am and 11 am. Pilots are required to do a brief preflight demonstration before each flight and take passengers for a short flight.
