The 21st World Assembly of the International Council of Aircraft Owner and Pilot Associations (IAOPA), originally scheduled to be held September 23-27, 2002, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, has been rescheduled for September 30-October 4, 2002. Logistics considerations in Sao Paulo necessitated the change.
The 21st World Assembly is being sponsored by the Brazilian Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (Associacao de Pilotos E Proprietarios de Aeronaves Brazil). Every two years, IAOPA board members and other interested parties meet to evaluate the state of world general aviation and aerial work activities and to plan future courses of action.
International delegates to the World Assembly will participate in a wide range of discussions of importance to general aviation and aerial work activities, including air traffic services, airport and airspace access, user fees, and pilot certification.
IAOPA represents the interests of AOPA affiliates in 56 countries of the world, comprising more than 400,000 general aviation and aerial work pilots and aircraft operators. The council was formed in 1962 to provide a voice for general aviation in world aviation forums.
