The event had to be cancelled due to weather.  Several factors contributed to the decision including the risk of thunderstorms and the heat and humidity.  The event has been rescheduled to September 21st. New registrations are NOT being accepted.   Those already registered for the event will be kept aprised of the arrangements.  We thank everyone for their interest!

COPA for Kids - COPA Flight 84 - Edenvale Aerodrome - Stayner

Saturday July 20th; Rain date Sunday July 21st. Registration opens soon...

Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like to fly? Have you ever dreamt of being a pilot? Now’s your chance to find out! If you are between ages 8 -17 you can come out and go on a flight with one of our volunteer pilots absolutely FREE.

With our Ground School you will learn just how a aeroplane flies and how to be safe around aircraft. You will board one of our private planes with an experienced aviator.  They will demonstrate how to safely taxi, takeoff, manoeuvre and land the airplane, with plenty of time to take in spectacular views while soaring through the blue sky, high above the airport, and maybe even over your own neighbourhood.

Sound exciting? All you have to do is click here and fill in our form, tell us your preferred time slot and we will do the rest.  Although we will do our best, we can't guarantee you will get your requested time slot.

Bring a parent or guardian and come out to enjoy a morning of flying, activities, hot dogs, watching planes take off and land. Coffee will be available for the parents too.

The day begins at 09:00 with "Ground School" briefings every 20 minutes.  Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your selected hour so we can verify all forms are completed correctly and the waiver is signed.

While we all love dogs and like to include them in our family adventures, please leave them at home. Dogs are not permitted at the Edenvale Airport.
