Next year, 2017, will be Canada's 150th birthday and birthdays are times for celebrations!
One COPA member and former member of the COPA board of director's, Darin Graham, has taken on an interesting aviation project to mark the year, that he calls Fly Canada 150.
In celebration of Canada’s 150th Birthday, my goal is to attempt to fly my small airplane to over 150 airports throughout Canada. I hope to visit at least one airport in each of the provinces and territories.
This is a celebration of the importance that aviation and airports have played in keeping Canada vibrant and prosperous.
You can help celebrate and make a difference too. I hope you make a donation to two remarkable aviation charities – "Hope Air" and "COPA’s Freedom to Fly".
You can follow Graham's progress as he flies his Piper PA-28-140 around Canada, starting in the new year on his project website.
