COPA Flight 176 - Rust Remover - 2017
COPA Flight 176 (Edmonton) - Rust Remover 2017 Saturday, June 10, 2017 Villeneuve Airport [CZVL] This year’s Rust Remover theme was based on planning a flight to attend the COPA National convention in Kelowna (June 22 - 24). Participants were encouraged to fly in for the event. We also organized a lobster roast / steak dinner prepared by Master Red Seal chef Ray Pritlove for after the event. The whole idea of the Rust Remover is to help general aviation pilots comply with the CARs currency requirement. Many GA pilots also fly infrequently during the winter, so this is an excellent opportunity to brush up on some important and relevant knowledge. Pilots who attend receive certification of having met the 2 year currency requirement of CARs.
