About the NGPA
Founded in 1990, the National Gay Pilots Association (NGPA) is an international organization of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) pilots and other aviation enthusiasts from around the world. Through education, outreach programs, and social events, the organization encourages members of the LGBT community to begin piloting careers; fosters equal treatment of LGBT aviators through advocacy and outreach; promotes aviation safety, and provides an affirming social and professional network for LGBT aviators. Learn more about NGPA at www.ngpa.org.
NGPA's publications are a key tool for members to stay connected. Every issue contains compelling editorial content covering current events, politics, fashion, health, aviation education, informative resources for professional pilots, event recaps, and a calendar of exciting upcoming events. CONTRAILS is printed quarterly and mailed to every level of paid membership, distributed at official NGPA events, sponsored events, and 60 universities and colleges for future aviators. An electronic version is distributed via the NGPA website at ngpa.org.
Our organization's monthly, digital newsletter is packed with the latest news and events at NGPA and within the LGBT aviation community, distributed to our full membership base. Users read NAVEGAYTOR to stay abreast of NGPA event announcements, nationwide local LGBT events, important dates, and member benefit highlights.
