The Mountains are Calling!
In this COPA safety seminar on mountain flying, we will focus on an introduction of how to fly over and through the mountains safely. This overview is not designed to replace specific flying training when we go mountain flying but rather to demonstrate why this training is so necessary for safe mountain operations in many parts of Canada.
In this session, we will be joined by our COPA Safety Program title sponsor, Garmin who will highlight specific Garmin-features across their product-line that relate to mountain flying.
