What we're about


Formed in 1957, this year marks the 58th anniversary of the Mid-Atlantic Pilots Association, a non-profit flying organization dedicated to air safety, aviation education and flying camaraderie.

All levels of pilots, student pilots and aviation enthusiasts are invited to join. Meetings are held on the second Thursday of every month at Lincoln Park Aviation. Meetings are free to dues paying members and their guests. Dinner is no longer a part of the MAPA program. Attendees are welcome and encouraged to gather at the Sunset Grill for Dinner and to socialize prior to or after the meeting. Meetings start at 7PM.

Membership is $35 a year and paid members are granted full voting privileges. As networking is an important facet of the organization, we welcome the participation of all aviators to our fly-outs and to meaningful collaboration on events and issues of interest.

Fly-outs are usually held the Saturday after our meeting, but may occur earlier or later to coincide with a destination event.
