Advocacy Icon

Protection for Your Freedom to Fly

AOPA was named a top advocacy association by The Hill for eight years in a row. Pilots like you represent less than one-quarter of 1% of the voting population. Without the strength of AOPA Political Action Committee (PAC), it would be all too easy for Congress to ignore the issues that matter most to pilots.
