About IAA

IAA serves members through six local districts (see map to the right) and a state Board of Directors. We have over 1000 members who promote or oppose laws, rules or regulations affecting general aviation. Additionally, we promote educational and informational programs.

In 1998 the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association awarded IAA the President's Special Citation recognizing our membership's contributions toward promoting general aviation, particularly IAA's efforts to maintain wilderness airports.

Our Strategies

Activities & Programs

Aviation Career Education Academy (ACE Academy)

Each year, IAA members volunteer their time and resources to provide career briefings, orientation flights, social activities, and hands-on experience for Idaho high school students.

Adoption of State of Idaho and USFS Airstrips

IAA sponsors maintenance work parties and IAA members volunteer as campground hosts to enhance safe operations at more than a dozen Idaho public airstrips.

Campaign to Preserve Public Airstrips

IAA members participate in letter-writing campaigns, speeches, and personal presentations to promote public awareness of the need to keep existing airstrips open and to re-open closed fields.

Informational Flights and Demonstrations

IAA members volunteer time and aircraft to fly federal and state government representatives to airstrips to assess proposed closures.

Lobbying and Political Efforts

IAA testifies before Congress and state legislatures and agencies regarding pending legislation and regulations that affect Idaho aviators. IAA coordinates letter-writing campaigns and other lobbying efforts supporting its positions.

Wilderness Within Reach

IAA members volunteer their time and aircraft to fly physically-challenged individuals into wilderness airstrips that would otherwise be inaccessible to them.
