Benefits of exhibiting at COPA Migration 16

COPA is sensitive to the expenses you incur as exhibitors and wants to maximize the return on your promotional investment. This year, most of COPA’s day-time Migration activities (e.g., our Annual Meeting, the Trade Show, all educational seminars, lunch on Friday and Saturday, and Saturday night’s banquet dinner) take place at the luxurious Green Valley Ranch Resort. The seminars and Annual Meeting are in three rooms in very close proximity to the Grand Ballroom which holds the Trade Show. Plus, lunch for all attendees (as well as the Exhibitors) will be served on the Trade Show floor, itself, helping maximize Exhibitor exposure to the Migration audience!

The Cirrus Owners & Pilots Association (aka, “COPA”) is a 501(c)7 non-profit corporation dedicated to serving its members.  COPA is not in any way affiliated with Cirrus Aircraft, the manufacturer.

Well-known as the night for meeting new friends or getting reacquainted with fellow COPA Members, we’re making it easy for those who’ve had a long day of traveling or attended the pre-Migration seminar by staging COPA Cabana at our host hotel, Green Valley Ranch. As you’re renewing old friendships and making new ones over cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, you’ll be able to take in the wonderful backyard and pool area of the resort.

COPA Cabana

Saturday, 10:30 am to 3:00+/- pm

 

The details of the spouse/partner’s event have been finalized and it’s going to be one not to miss. On Saturday, those attending will be transported to the Bellagio hotel, located on the strip and famous for its fountains. The experience will start with lunch at Lago, the first Italian restaurant from James Beard Award winner Chef Julian Serrano featuring the modern concept of small plates. The dining room has floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows ensuring spectacular views of the resort’s iconic fountains. After lunch enjoy a private, behind the scenes tour to learn what it takes to run this luxurious, renowned resort, including the famous Bellagio Fountains.

Spouse/ Partner Program

Known for its spectacular shows, famous restaurants, and exciting tours, we wanted to give you some time to experience Las Vegas. COPA has teamed with GVR to provide a pre-event concierge (Pre-Event Concierge) whom can book whatever excursion you desire! From recommended shows, a variety of activities from tours to a race car driving experience, there are many choices.

 

If you’d rather try one of the many high-end restaurants, many owned by well-known professional chefs, GVR has a list of off property restaurants. They can also make recommendations and reservations at any of the GVR restaurants

 

If you don’t see something on the provided lists that you’re interested in, just ask the concierge. The lists are suggestions of popular choices.

Brian’s determination, perseverance, faith, and sheer will to survive is unparalleled. His story of survival, recovery, and return to the Strike Eagle is an inspiration.

Annual COPA Banquet

Departure Information

If you file IFR, you will receive an IFR departure clearance from Ground/clearance delivery (listen to ATIS first) but there will likely be a delay.

 

If an IFR flight plan is preferred but you would like to depart VFR, obtain a squawk code from tower letting them know you will pick up your clearance from center. You then can avoid delays by filing from a convenient point outside Las Vegas airspace (100NM away), depart VFR from Henderson, and pick up your IFR clearance while in the air with Los Angeles Center. The Las Vegas TRACON will make every effort to give you “Bravo” services, but you should expect your IFR clearance from Los Angeles Center.

 

Remember, if you elect to depart IFR from KHND, there will likely be a departure delays as well as possible delay vectors and holding.

 

Both the TRACON and Los Angeles Center advises everyone to “file what you want but expect an amended routing.”

 

Again, peak traffic times are 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. local. Departing outside of that interval will minimize delays.

 

KHND has published noise abatement procedures for your review.  Click here.

While on the Ground

Henderson Executive Airport is the Migration host this year. M16 parking locations will be based on first-come first-serve. There are a limited number of tie-downs available to us. Shuttle vans will transport you from parking to the terminal for check-in.

 

Once our allotment of tiedowns are filled, we will be required to park in the northwest corner of the airport using wheel chocks. This is the same area used for M12.

 

Bring your own chocks! A full set is going to be required (chocks for each wheel). The parking area is on pavement but without tie-downs. Do not depend upon the FBO/COPA for chocks. If you do not have chocks available, you will be required to depart to another airport and utilize their tie-downs.

 

If you want to hangar your airplane during Migration, contact Bob Simpson at 702-235-6555 for availability and associated fees.

 

For M16, Henderson is offering a fuel discount – they will be providing full service at self-serve rates.

 

Overnight parking fees will be waived with the minimum fuel purchase of 20 gallons for piston and 100 gallons for SETP and VLJ.

 

As always, COPA will provide round-trip transportation between the airport FBO and The Green Valley Ranch Resort Host hotel for arrivals on Thursday, October 11th from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., as well as Friday, October 12th (times TBD). For departures, Sunday, October 14th from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Pilots desiring to arrive/depart outside of these dates/times need to make their own arrangements.

Suggested Routes

  • The M16 Planning Team suggests that you arrive VFR to KHND.
    o   There are no precision approaches into KHND. Since the IFR approaches into KHND have such high circling minimums anyway, even if arriving IFR, canceling 20 miles out would help traffic flow and spacing. IMC conditions are very rare in Las Vegas, especially in October, the weather is generally VMC with pleasant temperatures.

 

The following “Gates” have been worked out with LA center and Las Vegas TRACON for arrival into KHND. 
o   Arrivals from the North East: WYYNN -> BVU -> KHND

o   Arrivals from the South East:             IGM -> BVU -> KHND

o   Arrivals from the South/West:            WHIGG -> KHND

o   Arrivals from the North/West:           WHIGG -> KHND (Same as South)

 

While we suggest being on VFR Flight Following with Los Angles Center prior to entering the Las Vegas area, regardless of flight following, Henderson (KHND) is like any other Class D airport. You must establish two-way radio contact (with your call sign read back) with the Tower before entering their airspace. Also be aware of the Class Bravo Airspace that goes to the surface to the Northwest of KHND. Communication with the Tower does not provide you clearance into the Bravo airspace. 

 

While not recommended, if you prefer/must arrive under IFR, just follow the usual handoff instructions between Las Vegas TRACON and the Henderson Tower and expect the visual. Because of the busy Las Vegas airspace, you should expect delays due to ATC vectors and routing.

 

Peak traffic times are 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. local (Pacific Time Zone). Arriving outside of that interval will minimize delays.

 

Again …watch your pattern on the west side of the airport! KHND is just one mile south of the Class B “inner ring” where positive control airspace extends to the surface. Talking to Henderson Tower does not provide clearance into Bravo…
