Rockcliffe Canada Day Fly-in

COPA Flight 8 Webmaster Adam Hunt was at the edition of the Rockcliffe Flying Club's annual Canada Day event. As in past years the fly-in only attracted about half a dozen aircraft, despite the nice weather, although hundreds of people drove in for breakfast.

Maurice Prudhomme's Ottawa River Fly-in

COPA Flight 8's photographers, Michael Dixon and Nathalie Huard, were at Maurice Prudhomme's Ottawa River Fly-in, despite the warm weather. Michael reported:

Mo pulled his 25th fly-in off with a splash!! Actually, the runway was in good shape considering the previous day's weather. Mo had entertainment, his famous chili, a cake for the 25th and, as usual, many friendly pilots and friends. Nathalie preserved the day’s events with a variety of pictures for us to enjoy.

Reno Air Races

-

COPA Flight 8's Michael Dixon and Nathalie Huard went to the Reno Air Races in , where Nathalie took some great photographs.

About the event Michael wrote:

I thought the Ottawa crowd might enjoy some of Nathalie’s best shots of the 50th anniversary Reno Air races. Young Steve Hinton held the trophy once again in the unlimited class. These folks sure know how to hold a great event. Worth the long trip getting there.

Carleton Place Fly-in

COPA Flight 8 webmaster Adam Hunt attended the 2013 Carleton Place Fly-in, organized by COPA Flight 121. He noted:

The fly-in was moved to its rain date of Sunday 08 September 2013 and that, along with the cool temperatures and the high and gusty winds probably kept attendance down to about a dozen aircraft in addition to the locally-based ones. A number of pilots and spouses did drive in, though; the sun shone and the food was exceptional! It was great to catch up with the old friends that I saw there.
