The WNCPA supports General Aviation by promoting aviation safety, providing aviation education, and furthering interest in flying. We hold monthly meetings, plan flying events, host social activities, and fund an aviation education scholarship program.
Meetings. We meet the third Tuesday of each month at the Lacy Griffin Aviation Center adjacent to Asheville Regional Airport (AVL). The street address is: 21 Aviation Way, Fletcher, NC 28732. Our meetings start with a light dinner at 6:15 pm. A general meeting begins at 7:00 pm followed by a feature program on various aviation topics. For upcoming feature programs, see the WNCPA Program Schedule below.
Fly-outs. We also plan monthly luncheon fly-outs, typically the third Saturday of each month. All flights are weather-permitting, of course. See the WNCPA Fly-out Schedule below for upcoming fly-outs. For more about our fly-outs, please email us.
Educational Foundation. The Western North Carolina Pilots Association Educational Foundation is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt, charitable organization that provides scholarship grants to pilots in training. For more about the Foundation, how to contribute, or how to apply for a grant, click (here).
All flying enthusiasts are welcomed! You do not have to live in North Carolina, own a plane, or be a pilot. For more information about us, our activities, meeting location, and membership or renewal, please email us!
