As we have noted each year, one of our favorite annual events is
the yearly "Migration" hosted by owners and flyers of the Cirrus
Design flock. Gathering in the shadow of the CD factory in Duluth,
Minnesota, it is an event chock full of fun, fellowship, education
and more than a few surprises.

Exceptionally well organized, by ANY standard, the event hosts
hundreds of planes, flyers and exhibitors -- and rarely leaves any
attendee looking for more.
That said, the annual COPA Migration is obviously THE biggest
event of the year for Cirrus pilots. Just a few days ago, in late
June 2009, hundreds of Cirrus aircraft flew in from all over the
country (and beyond) to return to the "nest" to take advantage of
an extensive and varied roster of activities for the pilots AND
their families -- despite the issues associated with a down economy
and the uncertain futures that go with it.
Migration events include a number of unique and
highly-anticipated evening social events, numerous seminars and
presentations, and an extensive trade exhibition. Migration always
includes exciting speakers and aviation personalities - like this
year's presentation by Rod Machado. Two flight programs (for pilots
and non-pilots alike) were conducted as well as lots of activities
for pilots and their families.
There's so much to an annual migration, but rather than hear us
tell you all about it, we'll sit down for our annual chat with COPA
Prez, Curt Sanford, and get a solid overview of one of the most
progressive and impressive owner organizations in all GA.
