2023 COPA Member Satisfaction Survey – COPA regularly sends out a member satisfaction survey to determine how well the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association is meeting the needs of its members, and to discover how the association can continue to improve the services it provides. The 2023 survey results received 1490 responses, with members representing a diverse group of non-aircraft-owning pilots; aircraft owners and pilots; AMEs; drone pilots; aviation enthusiasts; and student pilots. The results revealed a significant number of members join COPA for its advocacy efforts, as we are the only association in Canada that advocates for general aviation needs at a national level. In 2024, COPA will leverage these results to contribute towards its planning efforts. Big and substantive changes are coming to our e-newsletters, our magazine, our website, and much more communication to you – our members. These changes are based on what members have told us they wanted the association to be, which is more focus on our community.
