AOPA Supports You Can Fly Program

Nearly 4,400 individual Aircra Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) Foundation donors gave more than 2.7 million to support You Can Fly initiatives.

   They also secured a matching grant from the Ray Foundation. The You Can Fly program is funded by these donations to the AOPA Foundation and is directly growing aviation through its four initiatives: High School, Flight Training, Flying Clubs, and Rusty Pilots. The donors this year have helped AOPA and You Can Fly progress toward the long-term goals of reaching 10,000 high school students a year with the High School Aviation STEM Curriculum, reducing the student pilot dropout rate, and reaching 10,000 flight training students through the AOPA Flight Training Advantage app, growing the number of pilots in the AOPA Flying Club Network to more than 10,000, and getting 15,000 lapsed pilots back in the air. With the second half of the year in full swing, those involved in and passionate about General Aviation are encouraged to keep the AOPA Foundation and You Can Fly in mind.
