About COPA Flight 10

About Us

Our club is the local Saskatoon chapter of COPA National.  COPA Flight 10 includes aviation enthusiasts of all ages and abilities!  Members range from seasoned pilots who have logged thousands of hours to those with zero hours and who are just interested in flying.  By bringing together aviators with varying levels of experience, we strive to improve knowledge, skill and safety in the greater Saskatoon aviation community and beyond.

Our club promotes a friendly and social atmosphere where members can be inspired and COPA after Christmas party 2013 013encouraged by fellow aviation enthusiasts.  As we improve our flying skills and widen our horizons through community, we also benefit by enjoying the company of like-minded people.
