Coral Sands Hotel & Resort
Harbour Island, The Bahamas

We are excited to announce the COPA Bahamas Adventure 2018 to the Coral Sands Hotel & Resort on Harbour Island on April 25-29.  

If this is your first time going to the Bahamas, don’t worry.  We have arranged for a flight briefing on Wednesday, April 25 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida to provide an easy and fun experience in international flying.  And flying with a group of fellow COPA members is a great way to meet new friends and learn how easy it is to travel to and from the Islands of the Bahamas.  We'll stay overnight in Fort Lauderdale and depart on Thursday morning, April 26 for North Eleuthera Airport (MYEH).

Coral Sands Hotel & Resort sits on a beautiful pink sand beach on Harbour Island and ranked "Best Island in the Caribbean" by a Travel and Leisure Magazine recent poll. Since our COPA trip in 2015, the Coral Sands has undergone extensive renovations and new building that make the resort even more special. Not only is the hotel on the beach but it also has incredible restaurants, lobby bar and pool as well as a wide variety of water sport activities..

MacDill Airfest 2018

Tampa Bay area residents eager for the return of MacDill's AirFest have some dates to put on their calendars. The 6th Air Mobility Wing confirmed Tuesday that the show will make a return in 2018.

MacDill AirFest 2018 is set to take place on the Tampa Air Force Base May 12-13. The United States Navy's Blue Angels will appear as the headline act, the 6th Air Mobility Wing confirmed in a Tuesday email to media.

"The show will also feature aerial performances by both military and civilian aviators," the base's email said. "Static aircraft will be on display, including many of the Department of Defense's cargo, fighter and special purpose aircraft."

MacDill also announced that its AirFest 2016 earned the Best Military Air Show award from the United States Air Force's Thunderbirds. That award is bestowed on the show that goes above and beyond "to bring the Thunderbirds' mission to the public, to emphasize safety and discipline, and to help recruit the next generation of airmen." The 2016 show also earned the Pinnacle Award Gold from the International Council of Airshow's conference.

"We are honored and proud to be able to give back to a community that gives us so much support," said Col April Vogel, commander of the 6th Air Mobility Wing. "The two awards that our 2016 airshow garnered can be directly attributed to that support."
