Why should you join FAPA.aero?

You owe it to yourself and those who depend on you to get the facts quickly and accurately and to be prepared. No organization can help professional pilots do that as effectively as FAPA.aero, for pennies per day. Our industry is emerging from a protracted financial crisis which led to thousands of layoffs, and it won't be the last time it happens.
