Keeping Pilots Safe.
Safeguarding the future of GA.
Growing and nurturing the pilot population is critical to AOPA’s mission to preserve the freedom to fly. Unfortunately, AOPA has discovered that the student pilot drop-out rate is around 80 percent and data has shown thousands of inactive flyers. Our industry is ready for positive change and AOPA is committed to implementing solutions that will maintain an active and growing base of pilots.
The challenge we face is multi-faceted across all areas of the pilot life cycle:
This is an industry-wide effort that cannot be undertaken by AOPA alone. It requires the participation of all industry stakeholders, pilots, and aviation enthusiasts. The AOPA Foundation is committed to carrying out this important initiative and is launching several critical programs including:
The programs outlined above will be instrumental in reversing the course of pilot decline and setting us on a new course for a stronger GA tomorrow and well into the future. The involvement of all industry stakeholders is a major key to turning the decline around, but most critical to preserving GA as we know it is the passionate involvement of pilots like you.
