I'm an RCAF pilot and airplane owner in Toronto and am being posted to Ottawa this summer for one year. I was formerly posted to Petawawa flying Griffons and am familiar with the Ottawa - Eastern Ontario aviation scene.

The Smiths Falls Flying Club (COPA Flight 100) will be holding an event that will introduce the kids in our community to a new experience, learning about flight and actually being in the cockpit while in flight. This year we are asking our members to bring their kids, grandkids and the neighbor kids between the ages of 8 and 17, especially those that have never been aloft before. The parents or guardians will be required to complete a registration and waiver form and to be present to supervise their charge. We will have the barbeque going with free hotdogs, drinks and a lot of fun for all. For more details on the COPA for Kids program see: www.copaforkids.org.

Safety will be our highest priority. This event is sanctioned by COPA National with the flying component underwritten by AIG Insurance.

A plea to our members: We have some volunteers for this event but we need more. Pilots and Planes, people on the ground to supervise the registration, to deliver short training sessions on aircraft systems, to operate the Unicom, run the barbeque , marshal the traffic and other light tasks. Please come and help if you can. For more details or if you would like to volunteer contact Floyd Graham

USA Requirement to Monitor 121.5
For the second time this year, a pilot has landed in trouble with the FAA for busting airspace. While the circumstances and type of airspace in the two cases were different, the one thing they had in common was neither was monitoring 121.5 as required by FAA regulation. In each case, had the pilot been listening, he/she would have heard folks calling and avoided the issue. In one case, the airspace wasn't critical, and the pilot got off with a warning, but the other case involved a Temporary Flight Restiction (TFR), and that pilot is likely to receive a suspension.

Some grade 7 and 8 Montague students had an airport and Classic Wings tour.
