On June 9, the Williams Lake Regional Airport will host a Canadian Owners and Pilots Association (COPA) ride for kids from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event will introduce children from age eight to 18 to the joys of aviation with a free flight in an airplane. The aircraft are being provided by the Williams Lake Flying Club.
Participants will experience: • A chance to examine a working aircraft close up on the ground (static display). • A short ground school session conducted by a pilot who will explain what the various parts of an aircraft are, what they do, and will answer questions about aviation and flying posed by the participants. • A walk around, preferably conducted on a static display aircraft, to show participants how pilots prepare for each flight and to brief the participants on the safety aspects of their flight.
• A flight in the front seat (if possible) of an aircraft where participants will be able to observe all the facets of flight from start-up to take-off to cruising to landing and shut-down.
