Welcome to the Oregon Pilots Association

We are the Oregon Pilots Association. Our goal is to promote aviation in the State of Oregon and to provide information to pilots and anyone interested in general aviation. We encourage all pilots and aviation enthusiasts to join our organization, whether you currently fly, own your own aircraft, or just like to talk aviation! Browse our site, check out some of our links, but most of all - join one of chapters in your area for one of our monthy meetings. If you don't wish to join a chapter, we encourage you to join as a "Member At Large", where you still gain all the benefits OPA has to offer.

President's Update - November 2014

Every volunteer organization such as OPA succeeds or fails because of thier volunteers.  There is no money, members give their time, pay for their gas, their av gas, and put aside leisure activities to help out…because they care.    We have a solid base of people who work very hard to make the Oregon Pilots Association succeed, at the individual level, the chapter level, and the state level. 

We need to do a lot more to applaud those of you who give not only that yearly membership check, but also your valuable personal time to pitch in and make things work!  We need to do more to recognize these people!  Please email me at the president's contact on the State -- Officer's page and tell us about the person you know who does such a great job to make OPA work.  Tell us what YOU do!  don't be shy!  Not only will we start recognizing these people here, on the website, but starting this year, we'll have a Member of the Year award to specially recognize an individual who has really gone above and beyond the expected, in terms of volunteering. 

You deserve the applause and we have been woeful about saluting you.  You know what?  Without your work, we wouldn't exist.

Thank you!

Know someone who does more than his or her share?  Share it with us!

We need to applaud!
