The Centre of Aviation Photography (COAP) is the world’s largest aviation photography organisation and provides the best aviation photography experiences in the world.

COAP Wings operates a year-round programme of professionally run, worldwide aviation photography trips, shoots and air-to-air photography flights - all totally dedicated to the aviation photographer and run by pro aviation shooters.

The bigger picture...

The Centre of Aviation Photography was set up in 2015 to change the landscape of aviation photography by award-winning, world-renowned photographer and journalist Rich Cooper & one of the the most experienced and travelled aviation photographers in the world, Steven Comber. 

The professional media arm was consolidated under COAP Media in 2016, delivering world class results to specialist media, online and in print.

During 2020-2021, COAP developed its highly active and successful membership with airline pilot, film maker & instructor Tom Dalt. COAP Online now features a world-class image sharing platform, a buzzing community, awesome entertainment & valuable learning, all in one membership.

Overall, we have undertaken some of the most historic and significant shoots in recent times and continue to provide the very best experiences, opportunities and community in the world of aviation photography.
