The International Council of Aircraft Owner and Pilot Associations (IAOPA) is a nonprofit federation of 73 autonomous, nongovernmental, national general aviation organizations. IAOPA has represented international general aviation for nearly 50 years.
The combined total of individuals represented by these constituent member groups of IAOPA is over 470,000 pilots, who fly general aviation aircraft for business and personal transportation. General aviation is defined by ICAO as "All civil aviation operations other than scheduled air services and non-scheduled air transport operations for remuneration or hire."
IAOPA is onderverdeeld in regio's die de ICAO regio's spiegelen. IAOPA Europe is het formele samenwerkingsverband van de nationale AOPA’s in Europa. Via de link krijgt u toegang tot veel actualiteiten en wederwaardigheden over vliegen in Europa.
