Sunday, June 8th was the “rain-date” for our GIRLS CAN FLY TOO/ COPA 4 KIDS flying event….but there was no rain!

COPA Flight #91 had super support from its members and from the Nanaimo Flying Club to host 15 passengers for their local flights.  Registration was ably handled by Anne-Marie Koeppen and Marilyn Bowerman; Doug. Sowden was Air Boss/Briefer, and Don Crocker was kitchen manager, ably assisted by Laura and Cathy Welte.

Eight pilots took part, and we thank Murray Welte, Ken Welte, Doug Wakefield, Gavin Chester, Ron Whyte, John Balogh, Rick Koeppen, and Andrea Trepanier for their contributions of plane time/gas/skill/ and knowledge.

Parents and young fliers thanked us all for providing such a great experience.

Each participant received a certificate, pin and “logbook” to help them remember the day.
