If you’ve ever thought about becoming a pilot, have just become one, or even if you’ve never been in an airplane before – we want you to be able to experience it.

We are the legacy of five pilots who were so passionate about flying and aviation they created AOPA to be able to protect the freedom to fly for everyone. So, we respect the past when we look to the future of flying. When you become a part of the AOPA family, you know we are working to keep flying safe and accessible so you can focus on the joy and adventurous spirit of aviation.
