miniCPPP Program

COPA University offers the miniCPPP program as a one-day ground training program to deliver CPPP (COPA Pilot Proficiency Program) courses to more pilots around the world.

The miniCPPP is designed to address the training needs of those who are unable to commit a full weekend to attend a CPPP. The miniCPPP showcases new and updated ground courses developed by COPA University.

The COPA Pilot Proficiency Program, which is conducted by the COPA Training Foundation LLC, is a remarkably successful program – reputed as the best pilot proficiency program for any type club in the world.

Our objective is to bring CPPP courses to a wider audience in locations where a CPPP is not scheduled. We hope that those who attend a miniCPPP will consider coming to the full weekend CPPP to take advantage of additional ground and flight training opportunities.
