“The best part of waking up and driving to work every day is knowing that I get to spend it with people who are equally as passionate as I about General Aviation. The camaraderie of staff goes well beyond the walls of the building and extends far and wide around the country. AOPA is a place to meet people from all over the world with similar interests and varying backgrounds.”

“Working at AOPA is the opportunity of a lifetime! In the 21 years I’ve been here, I’ve been presented with challenging and meaningful work and rewarded with opportunities for advancement. AOPA promotes from within and supports its employees through educational opportunities and other programs. Any pilot will tell you that AOPA is THE premier aviation organization. As a pilot, I know it’s a thrill to contribute to the AOPA mission of keeping flying safe, fun, and affordable.”
