COPA Flight 36



Hi: Just to let you know that we flew 44 young Eagles at YLW Sat June 16/07 as COPA members of the Kelowna Flying Club. We had 7 aircraft doing the "air lift duties", and our 7 pilots had large grins on their faces the entire morning! Add to this, 6 Air Cadets who volunteered with the proceedings, and one "Bald Eagle", our assistant manager at Kelowna International, Sam Samaddar. The weather was excellent, and we had all our kids registered by 10:00 a.m., and all ground school activities and flights completed by 11:30- 12:00

The hot dogs were great, and everyone had a superb time. A big thanks to all KFC members who turned out to make this event a huge success. We look forward to doing it all over again in the fall.

If the COPA magazine needs photos of this event, please go to our website: and pick a few. Just go to the Young Eagles button and you are there!

When you have chosen, give me an email with your choices, and I will give you the captions you need.

All YE families go to this site to download their respective photos.
