AOPA Member Product partners join the celebration

A hearty congratulations to AOPA Pilot magazine from AOPA Member Products on the celebration of the magazine’s fiftieth anniversary. Member Products also enjoys a long-standing relationship with AOPA members dating back to 1951 with its first partner, Minnesota Life and continuing across time to the most recent addition, AOPA Online Travel, powered by Orbitz. Over the years, AOPA has diligently searched out the best products and services to meet the needs of pilots. AOPA Member Products are designed just for AOPA members, offering exceptional service and discounts.

Thanks to AOPA Member Products, AOPA can create and offer extra benefits to our members free, including AOPA Online, the Pilot Information Center, AOPA’s Airport Directory, and representation on Capitol Hill on matters that affect you most—all without raising membership dues for more than 17 years. Simply by participating in the products and services provided by AOPA Member Products partners, AOPA members are financially supporting general aviation at no additional cost.

Financial services

From aircraft financing to credit cards, since 1984, AOPA Member Products offers low rates and rewards designed for pilots. One of the easiest ways to help us help you is to use the AOPA credit card. Each time members use the card, revenue is generated at no cost and provided to AOPA. AOPA uses these funds to keep dues low and fund free benefits like the airport directory and the world’s best aviation magazine. Plus, the card benefits you with one point per purchase and double points at more than 4,000 FBOs. Points can be redeemed for cash back, merchandise, and much more.

Pilot services

Beginning in 1981, AOPA Member Products has offered special services that pilots appreciate—including discounts that can help reduce the cost of flying and programs that provide additional protection or make flying easier with products such as legal services, title services, online travel, car rental discounts, and aviation newsletter discounts.

Insurance services

AOPA Member Products has a range of aircraft and personal insurance products for all pilots—owners, renters, and CFIs—at all stages of life. We have you covered with comprehensive insurance options. Since 1993, the AOPA Insurance Agency has operated the largest agency servicing the personal aviation category, offering the best policy at the right price based on our members’ unique needs. AOPA also partners with AIG Auto Insurance and Minnesota Life to cover all insurance needs.

Whether you are an aircraft owner, renter or CFI—AOPA Member Products offers a wide variety of products to meet your specific needs as a pilot. You can learn more about AOPA Member Products when you visit the Web site or call at 800-USA-AOPA.
