Arrival Day

by on Aug.15, 2011, under Flying

COPA pilots that had not come in early started arriving on Thursday morning. After a work out at the resort I went to the airport for a demo flight in the Eclipse Jet. WOW, what a treat. This is a exciting airplane and must be considered in where I go next in my flying life. When I made my approach for landing there were Cirrus every where coming in to Colorado Spring. This is exciting stuff and I still get a lump in my throat when I see one Cirrus after another land and taxi in. The Colorado Jet Center handled the steady stream of Cirrus perfectly. You taxied up, unloaded, were taken to the Jet Center hangar for registration. After registration you could grab a snack and visit the exhibits that were all set up. Buses then took the arriving attendees to the Cheyenne Mountain Resort. At 6:30 PM everyone gathered for welcome cocktails and very heavy Hors D’ Ouvevres at the traditional COPA Cabana with a Cowboy flavor. There was a real buzz as old friends reconnected and new friends were made. All the exhibitors where there so it was a big party.
