The weather products which this site links to are developed and maintained by various government and private entities; COPA provides only the links to these sites. As with all weather products, pilots must check issue and validity dates carefully when referencing this information. COPA maintains a log of all sites accessed by our members through the CPPP Weather pages to help members document the information gathered during a pre-flight briefing. However, COPA recommends that each pilot receive a full weather briefing from Flight Service prior to each flight.
