The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association UK is part of the largest association of pilots in the world, with over 400,000 members in over 66 countries. AOPA UK is a not-for-profit organisation which exists to serve the interests of its members as aircraft owners and pilots, promoting the economy, safety, utility, and popularity of flight in general aviation aircraft.
AOPA UK provides the vital voice that speaks for the interests of UK pilots, for issues, including and not limited to airspace access, aerodrome access, threats of aerodrome closure, pilot licensing, aircraft ownership and flying costs. It speaks not only to the UK authorities but to Europe and the rest of the world through IAOPA’s seat at ICAO, the United Nations body that oversees civil aviation throughout the globe.
