Young Air Pilots

irrespective of their membership grade.



Membership benefits

To many the benefits are about being part of a body of aviators that, collectively, can make a positive difference to aviation.  To others, the most important benefit is the social aspect of the Company's programme of events and the opportunity to mix with professional and private pilots alike, of all experience levels and backgrounds, or the professional networking and interaction on a level not otherwise possible in the commercial environment.  Others simply like being able to give something back to a profession or passion that they have benefitted from for many years.

Some of the more 'tangible' benefits are:

Air Pilot
Members receive a bi-monthly issue of Air Pilot magazine. These publications include up to date information on the aviation scene and Company activities.  Electronic versions of Air Pilot are available here.

Professional Visits and Social Events
Many events are arranged each year which are open to application for all members.

Technical Advice
The Director of Aviation Affairs (DAA) Nick Goodwyn can often be of assistance to members seeking aviation advice.

Aviation Medical Advice
The Company has several Honorary Medical Advisers who are available to give confidential advice to members.

Legal Advice
The Company has arranged with its Honorary Solicitors to be willing to give free first aid advice.

The Air Pilots Benevolent Fund is a registered (UK) charity and is available for assistance where appropriate.
