Calling all members: Tell us about your pilot, airport group

Are you a member of an airport or pilot group at your home base? If so, tell us about it . AOPA is compiling information on airport and pilot groups nationwide in order to build up grassroots advocacy efforts and engage pilots when their airport is under attack.

The association will use the information to build a stronger relationship with pilots at the local level, increase the number of Airport Support Network volunteers, and help members learn how they can support general aviation at their airport.

“AOPA needs local partners to help influence local and state decision makers, and an airport support group is a great place to find those allies,” said Greg Pecoraro, AOPA vice president of airports and state advocacy. “We want to build a strong working relationship with local pilot groups so that when the need arises, we can work together and help equip them with the tools needed to protect their airport.”

As the information is vetted, AOPA will incorporate it on AOPA Online and eventually through AOPA’s Airport Directory Online to allow members to search for groups to join. To make sure AOPA knows about your group, complete this short questionnaire.
