First, make sure you are logged into the AOPA website. Your name should appear in the upper right corner of the webpage. Also, make sure you have “claimed” your business and received a confirmation back from the AOPA Airports team. If you are not sure you have claimed your business, please follow the instructions in Step 2 above.

I’m not sure I have an AOPA web account. How do I check this?

If you have previously registered for a free AOPA web account, or, you have an AOPA membership, you can reset your password or retrieve your username using links on the login page.

I can’t find my FBO or Business in the Airport Directory when I search for it. How can I locate it or have it added to the AOPA Directory?

In order to find your FBO or Business, first do a search for the airport where you are based. You can search by the name of the airport, city/state or by the FAA or ICAO identifier. Go to the airport details page once you locate the correct airport and click on the FBOs quick-link in the top navigation bar. You should see your FBO/Business name in the list FBO’s or Other Businesses. If your FBO or Business is not in the list, please contact our Airport Directory team via email at [email protected] for assistance.

Can I authorize another staff member to make updates to our FBO/Business listing?

What is the “Verify This Listing” checkbox?

The “Verify This Listing” checkbox is used after you have reviewed all of your data and determined that no updates are needed. Checking this box will update the “last updated” date on your listing so pilots and other users know that your information is current.

How often should we update our FBO or Business listing?

You can update your listing anytime you have changes to your business. Changes could be for services, products, fees, contact info and other information. Even if you don’t have any changes, we recommend you verify your listing on a periodic basis like monthly or quarterly. Using the “Verify This Listing” checkbox sets a new “Last Updated” date so pilots and other users know that your information is current.

Is there a charge or fee to list my FBO/Business in the AOPA Airport Directory?

No! Your business listing is a free service provided by AOPA. The AOPA Airport Directory is a comprehensive source of airport and FBO and Business information used by pilots and other users. The AOPA Airport Directory attracts over 47,000 visitors per month and is open to all users with or without an AOPA membership.
