The Central Ohio Flyers Association (COFA) was formed in 1966 and is incorporated as C.O.F.A., Inc. under the laws of the State of Ohio. We are an ownership-based flying club. That's right, we own all of our aircraft, so you won't be left without your favorite bird because the ownership decided to end a leaseback. Our membership ranges from beginning students to CFIIs and from newly rated instrument pilots to ATPs with years of experience.
