The easiest way to contact us is using the Contact button on this website, www.calpilots.org. In the CalPilots Board section, you will also find a map which shows the state’s five regions.

The following points are very effective:

  • It is important to educate and organize.
  • If you do not belong to a local airport/pilot organization, then join one. If none exists, then it is time to start one – we can help you
  • Determine who your airport decision makers are, county or city council. Then establish a working relationship; and don’t forget to include city/county planners and the airport manager
  • Become educated and involved in all airport matters
  • Attend council meetings with airport related business, especially new development proposals
  • Work together with your airport manager – Why? – because he/she can be a huge asset helping you deal with issues at hand
  • Get involved – each of us can do something to help, no matter how small

The board of California Pilots Association is made up of statewide volunteers serving two year terms. We are constantly seeking volunteers; if you are interested please contact us.

Established in 1949, we are a statewide non-profit committed to the support of our state general aviation airports and flight privileges.

Our objectives are:

  • Growing General Aviation
  • Airport/infrastructure support and advocacy
  • Advice/Expert Testimony
  • Research, Education/Information, and
  • Events – such as our Annual Meeting and statewide meet and greet meetings

We are a statewide non-profit served by volunteers. All money collected in the form of dues or donations is used to deal with the many issues that our airports face – no one is paid. To continue our success, we need your support. A membership is less than 10 cents per day. Aren’t your airport and your aviator privileges worth that amount? Please join us in helping you in protecting your airport.
