When it comes to flying, the weather on Saturday, July 7th on the Lake Huron shoreline was considered perfect.
COPA (Canadian Owners & Pilots Association) held its annual KIDS DAY at Port Elgin airport when area pilots took the time to take kids up into the air and, for most, it was a first time flight.
Those who completed a flight also received a certificate and, those who were 14 to 17 also received an official log book of their flight time. The log allows them free access to an on-line instructional program valued at $300, that satisfies the study requirement for a private pilot’s licence to prepare them for subsequent flight training on their own.
According to the registration records, there were visitors from Kincardine, Tiverton, Paisley, Walkerton, Cambridge and Sudbury.
