Thanks for all the Good Info Smile (on airports and FBOs) I now have ten times more info than i had previously, and can make an Informed decision, This is just one of many reasons why i find $65 a year for COPA dues to be worthwhile.


I make a living teaching others about these great aircraft, and I use COPA and COPA Pilot magazine to keep me up to date with current maintenance and safety issues. I spend time with each student during initial and recurrent training, discussing accident statistics. The compilation of data contained in this website and in the Safety Issue makes for easy analysis and if incorporated in proper training should have an impact on fleet training.

Those scheduled for the initial [COPA Pilot Proficiency Program] flight training expressed anxiety as they were over-awed by the resumes of their allocated COPA instructors. However, upon return they all had grins borne out of accomplishment and amazement as to how good the instructors were at stretching their flight envelope without putting them down.
