COPA Mission Statement
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 certified aircraft manufactured by Cirrus Design Corporation, encourage ownership of these aircraft and provide social activities for its members. Additionally, COPA will promote goodwill towards the general aviation community.
Founded in 2001, with over 3000 members worldwide, COPA is a volunteer-run organization completely independent of Cirrus Design Corp.
Membership is open to all interested individuals. Dues include a subscription to Cirrus Pilot magazine, access to the COPA members website and forums, and eligibility to attend other COPA events and activities (additional fees apply to some activities).
