About COPPERSTATE

Since its first event in 1973, COPPERSTATE Fly-In has been bringing together aviation enthusiasts in the southwest United States. COPPERSTATE Fly-In, Inc. is a volunteer run, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting recreational and general aviation through events, scholarships, and public education. Proceeds from the COPPERSTATE Fly-In help support scholarship programs for youth seeking careers in the aerospace industry.

The COPPERSTATE Fly-In is under the sole ownership, control, and operation of COPPERSTATE Fly-In, Inc. and not the Experimental Aircraft Association Inc. (EAA). COPPERSTATE is the largest Fly-In of its type in the western United States and the third largest Fly-In in the United States.

Donate to COPPERSTATE!

Please, consider a donation to Copperstate Fly-In to help keep the dream of flight alive! As a 501c3 non-profit organization, we pride ourselves in helping to introduce, share, and educate the public in aviation. Aside from the Fly-In event, where visitors can experience aviation in person, we offer other programs including a scholarship program for youth interested in aviation that sends them on an adventure to the EAA Air Academy in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Our event, programs, and future development rely on the kind donations from those interested in keeping aviation alive as much as we are. So please, consider a donation today!
