Free flights at Pitt Meadows airport

Free flights for children on Pitt Meadows Day at the airport.

Free flights will be available for children at Pitt Meadows airport this Pitt Meadows Day.

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association will be hosting the COPA for Kids Aviation Program, in which children eight to 17 years old can learn how a plane operates before a free eight-minute flight over Pitt Meadows.

To pre-register a child, go to COPA16.wordpress.com, where you will be prompted for your name, the name of the child, a time of preference and an email address or contact number.

Pre-registered children will be guaranteed a flight and times will be accommodated as much as possible. However, pre-registration is not necessary.

Parking will be available in the main parking lot at the airport.
