WPA Aims to Advance and Protect
the Interests of General Aviation in Washington State

Youth Scholarships

The WPA Youth Aviation Scholarship Fund (YASF) is a 501(C) (3) foundation dedicated to the future of aviation. In addition, several chapters around the state provide scholarships for training.

Advocacy & Action

The WPA Political Action Committee (WPA-PAC) is focused on general aviation interests in Washington. Likewise, WPA works with Airport Managers, WSDOT, State Legislators, AOPA,the FAA and others to advocate for GA interests in Washington State.


Richard Beckert, WPA President

The Washington Pilots Association started in 1960 and has grown to nearly 24 chapters and over 1500 members statewide. Since its inception the WPA has centered itself around Advocacy, Education, Outreach and Social interests of GA pilots. These four pillars drive our efforts to promote and protect general aviation throughout Washington State. Whether you're a veteran pilot or have just discovered a passion for aviation, we are proud to welcome you to the wonders of flight in the Pacific Northwest! You are the voice of all pilots flying in our state, and we know that strength in numbers works.
