The Kelowna Flying Club and its members of the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association (COPA) are reminding parents that registration for COPA for Kids is now open.

On June 4, almost 200 youth from the Okanagan will climb into a plane with a pilot and soar over the Okanagan Valley. The event is a way to show youth from the ages of eight to 17 about aircrafts and what goes into becoming a pilot.

More than 180 kids will get a close-up look at some aircrafts on the ground, attend a short ground school and then will get ready for take-off.

The event will take place at the Kelowna Flying Club, at the Kelowna International Airport.

Aviation enthusiasts, kids and families are welcome to attend the event, even if they’re not taking part in a flight. There will be a number of exhibitors and static display aircrafts including Medi-Vac, Search and Rescue, helicopters, charter aircraft, flight schools and Air Cadets.
