    Changes to Remote Communications Outlets (RCO) in Southern Ontario
    COPA
    By Kevin Psutka, COPA President and CEO
    Normally, COPA does not announce changes of this sort because members should be making it a regular habit of checking the Aeronautical Information Circulars (AICs) and Service Project Announcements instead of relying on COPA to do that job for them. However, these changes on March 7, affect a large concentration of our members and they present an opportunity to re-emphasize the need to periodically check these important sources of information so that you are not surprised by changes and unable to communicate in a time of need.

    Canadian aviation threatened
    Windsor Star
    Federal authorities were on high alert last year after receiving rare back-to-back threats directed at an international flight and several Canadian airports, newly released records show.
