How do I join COPAMA?

  • It's simple! If you're a member of PAMA National, you already are a member of COPAMA. While we encourage our members to join the PAMA National organization, we never turn away anyone who is interested in Aviation Maintenance.

    When recently asked by a CSCC AMT Student what the requirements were to be an active member, the reply was simply "be active"! Attend one of the events we host and sponsor and give back by helping on a committee or a number of other ways.

    The same goes for our regular members. Your help and input along with Event participation keep our Non-Profit status intact.

Where can I find information about PAMA and COPAMA?

  • The best place for information on PAMA National is their website at You'll find a wealth of information on membership, governmental issues, training and other issues in Aviation Maintenance. They even have a Face Book page to keep you up on current topics and comment when you want to add your input.

    This new COPAMA Website should provide answers to many topics and will include our historical record back through 2006, our bylaws, future meeting topics and event information. The About page is a good place to start and the Contacts page provides easy ways to contact us for other details you might be interested in!

What are the figures on the COPAMA logo?

  • The original logo was a simple State of Ohio outline with the Wright Flyer and DC-9 aircraft images positioned inside it's boarders. The words Central Ohio Professional Aviation Maintenance Association surrounded the outside of the image.

    With COPAMA ready to start it's second decade of operation, the logo has been updated and now sports a cross plan view of the Boeing Dream-liner and the name horizontal across the top and bottom.

How can I find out if an Event will cancel?

  • When a challenge to the safe completion of an Event occurs, the Board of Directors review the threat and, if necessary, notify the group by the website and broadcast emails. Just like the National Weather Service has Watches and Warnings, we will email you to advise that the Event may cancel or has cancelled as the circumstances dictate. The website will contain the latest information about our Events and will be the first place to check if you haven't received a notice by email. Be sure to keep your email address acurate by emailing any changes to

    If you're on Facebook or Twitter, we've just set up a group on both social networks and will use them as a tool to reach out to our members when problems with an Event may occur.
