Fort McMurray fires
General Aviation pilots, COPA Flight 176 Edmonton and COPA go beyond their call of duty to assist!
An effort is being organized in conjunction with the Red Cross to provide relief supplies and fire crew changes, by utilizing Edmonton area general aviation.
We are looking for approximately 20 G.A. pilots and airplanes
to fly personnel and supplies into the Fort McMurray Fire. Due to conditions this may involve flying as far as Lac La Biche or some other airport.
COPA member and pilot in Fort McMurray — (report from The Magnes Group) Spoke to Johan Bouwer, he was happy to get a call. He said that he's had so many people reach out to him and his family and that it's brought a tear to his eye knowing everyone cares so much. He said he's using his aircraft to fly medical supplies to a spot nearby and that he and his family are safe!
Proving once again, the importance and added value that General Aviation and aerodromes bring to every Canadian community!
