The Arizona Pilot’s Association (APA) was organized in 1978 to give Arizona’s general aviation community a voice in aviation matters. Our mission remains much the same today as we continue to promote general aviation through advocacy at various levels of state and federal government, as well as through partnering with other aviation organizations in advocating our common interests: promoting aviation safety, pilot education, and public understanding of general aviation; preserving, maintaining, and even re-opening Arizona’s backcountry and recreational airstrips; broadcasting Arizona aviation news; and connecting Arizona pilots through aviation events.
Join the APA to participate in and enjoy all the benefits of membership which include:
These bulletins were produced by the APA and RAF to provide information to increase the safety of pilots choosing to fly into these backcountry airstrips. See locations on Google Maps.
The liability waiver must be completed for any APA sponsored fly-in event. Please sign and either mail, email, or fax to 520-826-3101.
