Membership Has Rewards

 
 
We have many memberships available! Still deciding which one best suits you? If you have a spouse, partner, or boyfriend/girlfriend, we encourage you to join together. Aviation is a passion we love to share, especially with those we love. A family membership allows your plus one to take advantage of special pricing on events and enjoy the full NGPA membership. We have many spousal activities during our events including bike rides, hikes, 5k races, boat rides, etc.

Once your membership is processed, you will receive our next published magazine, Contrails, in the mail. Our previous editions are available in the document archive section on the website so you can take a look back at how we got to where we are today.

You have made the best decision of your life today by joining our community. From here on out, this process is easy, and we frankly want to get to know you a little better. Please fill out as much as you can, so that we can use that information to better serve you throughout the year and at events.

We are so excited to have you join our family, and we look forward to seeing you at an NGPA event near you.
   

Member Benefits and Discounts

 
With over 3,500 members on the roster, one the biggest benefits of joining the association is the camaraderie our members enjoy from belonging to an organization of LGBT aviators and aviation enthusiasts. Whether that camaraderie is generated by attending one of the many events, communicating online, or reading the latest association magazine, it’s the fellowship of our members that strikes a consistent, rewarding chord.

Events
We host numerous events throughout the year and across the continent. Our two major events are held in Provincetown, Mass. in September and in Palm Springs, Calif. in January. Other events such as the NGPA Industry Expo, Women in Aviation, and Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals (OBAP) conferences, and EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh also attract large numbers. We occasionally offer group travel discounts for adventures with other members to exciting destinations.

Contrails – the quarterly magazine
Our quarterly magazine, Contrails, keeps you informed on programs, events, member stories, and items of interest. Articles cover topics as varied as aviation safety, FAA regulations and technology advancements, coming out on the job stories, favorite flying destinations, and coverage of events. One of the most popular regular features is the “Member Profile,” which introduces a member to the rest of the membership. The event calendar lists events not only from the National Gay Pilots Association, but also the events taking place at local gay and lesbian aviation groups across the country.

Navegaytor
Our monthly e-newsletter keeps you up-to-date on the latest organization news. Read about upcoming events, or keep in the loop by reviewing past events. A monthly listing of all club activities for local organizations keeps the NGPA network moving!

Registered Members Web Access
NGPA Members have access to to a wide variety secure of social networking experiences on our website. From messaging, photos, chat, discussion groups, and links to Facebook and Twitter, the site has something for everyone. Registered members can access secure online services for viewing the calendar and registering for events. Members can update their own information, including renewals, and can post as many photos as they wish. There are also links to other aviation and LGBT resources such as regional LGBT aviation groups, aviation flight planning services, and safety reports.

Health Policies
For U.S. pilots, we also provide an excellent opportunity for you to consult with the pros regarding the FAA’s most current policy on illnesses, medications, opportunistic infections, etc., through its relationship with Virtual Flight Surgeons.

Membership Directory
Through our member directory, you can search for members in your area or for those with a specific aviation interest or certification. All our subscribers can opt in so friends and colleagues can find them throughout our network.
 
Local Groups
NGPA hosts two flagship events every year. Throughout the year we stay in touch by promoting and sponsoring local NGPA chapters or affiliates to encourage fellowship and networking. We have many established local groups already, and the number of local groups keeps growing. If you are interested in starting a local group, or joining a group already established, reach out to the leaders of that group today and attend the next gathering! You won’t regret it!
