Airports and State Advocacy

Through AOPA staff, a network of seven regional managers, and a corps of 2,500 Airport Support Network volunteers, AOPA advocates for its members at the state and local level to:

  • Promote, protect, and defend America’s community airports
  • Maintain sufficient state and local funding for GA Airports and infrastructure
  • Prevent excess state taxation on flying
  • Protect general aviation from unnecessary state and local regulation

The AOPA Airport Support Network provides the vehicle for AOPA members to work in concert with AOPA to establish that early warning system. AOPA's goal is to have an Airport Support Network (ASN) volunteer at every public-use airport in the United States.
