The AOPA is the largest pilot association in the United States and has hundreds of thousands of members. The organization works to support pilots through leadership, advocacy, safety education, training, and technical competence. Additionally, the AOPA maintains a charitable foundation.
The AOPA Foundation strives to support aviation education and maintain safety through several mechanisms. The organization provides pilot training scholarships and public benefit aviation. These measures also help to grow the pilot population and preserve local community airports. For additional information on the Foundation, visit www.aopa.org.
