The Cirrus Owners and Pilots Association (COPA) is a not-for profit membership organization established to educate, promote the safety of and support the owners and pilots of the SR20 and SR22 aircraft manufactured by Cirrus Aircraft, encourage ownership of these aircraft
and provide social activities for its members.
Membership is open to all; you don't have to be a Cirrus owner or pilot to join.
Founded in 2001, with over 3500 members
worldwide, COPA is a volunteer-run organization
completely independent of Cirrus Aircraft.
Membership in COPA
All interested individuals are welcome to join. You don't have to own or fly a Cirrus to join COPA. We especially encourage everyone considering becoming a Cirrus pilot or owner to join. Our membership includes pilots with a wide range of experience, and low- and high-time pilots are all well represented. Our membership also includes many Cirrus renters, student pilots, and even non-pilot enthusiasts.
