    It has recently come to the attention of the Airpark Board of Directors during an audit, that due to a computer problem some credit card transactions for gas purchases between Feb and Aug of 2018 were not processed. Members will be receiving an email prior to reprocessing, but as we have no way of contacting visitors you may be suprised to see a credit card charge you were not expecting!

    we apologize for the inconvenience but we are sure you understand that we cannot give the gas away!

    Project Watershed is closely involved with the restoration and upkeep of the natural environment around our Airpark. In mid-May they made use of our lounge for public presentations which included a tour of the river and surroundings next to the Airpark. This short video of that tour gives a different and enjoyable view from what we normally observe from the airfield side.

    Courtenay Airpark members are well aware of the looming shortage of aviation professionals, a situation much in the news for the past few years. We support all efforts to get young people interested in pursuing aviation-related careers and to this end, several Airpark volunteer-pilots participate in two recognized programs that offer flight experiences at no cost, to youths aged 8 to 17 inclusive.

    COPA for KIDS is sponsored by the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association.  Founded in 1952, the mission of COPA is to advance, promote and preserve the Canadian freedom to fly. The Association has close to 16,000 members across Canada and the COPA for Kids program, which introduces over 3000 Canadian children to aviation each year, is a vital component of its collective outreach and promotion within the broader community.

    EAA Young Eagles is sponsored by the Experimental Aircraft Association based in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The EAA was founded in 1953 and is an international organization of aviation enthusiasts numbering over 200,000 world-wide including many in Canada.

    To date, COPA for Kids has introduced over 23,000 young Canadians to General Aviation.

    Since its beginning in 1992, more than 2 million young people have enjoyed a free introductory flight through EAA's Young Eagle program.

    Volunteer EAA YE's and COPA for Kids pilots bear the total cost of flights and as members of these organizations are duty-bound to operate in accordance with all applicable Transport Canada rules and regulations. In addition to the normal mandated insurance coverage, both the EAA and COPA extend additional coverage for both the pilot and passenger.

    Interested persons may also contact the Courtenay Airpark Association via email, to connect with a participating local pilot.

    The link below is from a post by local writer George Le Masurier about the updated Community Traffic Plan that if implemented, would have serious consequences for our Airpark (and others).

    George's website  Decafnation has provision for posting comments....

    "The City of Courtenay has floated a proposal to build a third crossing of the Courtenay River at 21st Street to alleviate traffic congestion at the 17th Street and Fifth Street bridges.

    The proposal, which is part of a study for the city’s required update of their 2014 Master Transportation Plan, would wipe out the Courtenay Airpark, part of the Airpark walkway, destroy the estuary’s last remaining intact ecosystem at Hollyhock Marsh, undermine the Kus-kus-sum rehabilitation project"
