Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association of Australia



AOPA is pleased to announce the creation of a new helicopter committee to represent the interests of helicopter pilots and operators. We consider that the formation of a helicopter committee within AOPA will be mutually beneficial as we have common goals in the preservation of our right to fly safely without undue restriction or unnecessary regulation.

The inclusion of helicopters within AOPA will be on an equal basis with fixed wing aircraft. AOPA acknowledges there are aviation issues that are unique to helicopters which is why we have set up this committee headed up by highly experienced helicopter operators.
