Trade show searching for volunteers

The Pilots Association Convention and Trade Show is in need of volunteers

The Pilots Association Convention and Trade Show is in need of volunteers.

The Kelowna International Airport and the Kelowna and District Flying Club are hosting the 2017 COPA on June 23 and 24, and they’re looking for volunteers.

COPA is expecting more than 400 attendees for this event, many of whom will arrive in their aircraft from across Canada. The convention will feature under-the-wing camping, an exhibitor static display of aircraft, an aviation trade show, several breakout sessions and a banquet dinner.

There are several volunteer roles that will be needed from June 22 to 25, including security personnel, campground hosts, aircraft and camping registration and aircraft marshallers.

The volunteer application can be found here. For more information on the COPA Convention and Trade Show, visit COPA’s website.

COPA represents more than 17,000 pilots and aircraft owners across the country and is the national voice for General Aviation in Canada.
