Membership to Help Mitigate the Risks Associated with a Flying Career

You’ve worked hard and invested a great deal of time and money to become a professional pilot.  Now that you’ve achieved your goal, what are you doing to protect your investment and career?

AOPA's exclusive Pro Pilot membership was created to help professional pilots just like you.

Flying is heavily regulated, with rules covering finite details. Consequences for an infraction can be severe including, loss of license, medical, fines, hassle, embarrassment and possibly an irreversible blemish on your record. Where will you turn for help if an event occurs? Who will you call if an action is taken against you? Don’t count on your employer to protect you, your license, or livelihood. You must protect yourself.

The good news is … AOPA has your back!

AOPA Pro Pilot Membership Rate $189/year

Monthly optional also available for $15.99/month

When you join as an AOPA Pro Pilot member, you receive instant access to …

  • AOPA Pilot Protection Services Plus coverage* to protect your pilot and medical certificates

  • Dedicated helpline for Professional Pilots
  • Members-only access to affordable Loss of Medical Certificate coverage, Term Life, and AD&D Insurance for flying professionally or recreationally
  • Professional Pilot Speakers Bureau

Don’t let a regulatory violation tarnish your record or end your flying career. It’s easy to mitigate your risk with an AOPA Pro Pilot Membership. Give yourself peace of mind by joining today!

You'd be nuts to fly without the legal protection. A good attorney is expensive; retaining one for an action brought by the FAA far exceeds the cost of the program. I learned this the hard way when I was subject to an "ambiguous controller instruction." I was out several thousands of dollars in a wink of an eye. My attorney was a panel attorney for AOPA’s Legal Services Plan and most of that cost would have been covered. The controllers were wrong, but that didn't mean I didn’t have to defend myself.
