Fort McMurray Donation

COPA Flight 172 Donation

On May 22, 2016, the Kincardine Airport and hangar owners held an open house for the public from 10 till 3pm. During this event the local COPA (Canadian Owner & Pilots Association) Flight 172 had a BBQ of Hamburgs and Hotdogs to rise money for the Fort McMurray fire relief fund. The weather was great and approximately 150 people from the community came out to have their photos taken with the planes, asked the pilots questions about flying and tour around the airport facilities. COPA Flight 172 gave out hamburgs, hotdogs, chips and a drink for a donation where the proceeds of $404.00 was raised and sent to the CDN Red Cross for Fort McMurray. Flight 172 would like to thank everyone that came out to the airport that day and gave a donation.  Fort McMurray appreciates the money and members of Flight 172 thank you for your support. In the photo presenting the cheque is Jack Searson, Hugh Girvin and Chris McCullough. (COPA Flight 172 executive)

Martin Mars Air Tanker flying to AirVenture

This week lots of Canadians are going to AirVenture in Osh Kosh Wisconsin USA, including pilots from Coulson Aviation in Port Alberni, British Columbia.  They will be flying a Martin Mars air boat and landing it on Lake Winnebago..  The Martin Mars is the largest flying boat ever flown operationally, with a height of 38 feet, a length of 120 feet, and a wingspan of 200 feet (approximately the wingspan of a Boeing 747). Only six of the massive aircraft were built.  Coulson Aviation has been using the two remaining aircraft as water bombers on forest fires since 2007.
