Welcome to the East Central Ohio Pilots Association
The East Central Ohio Pilots Association is one of the most established pilot groups in the nation serving our regional aviation community. Organized in 1962, the purpose of the Association is to promote General Aviation and voice an opinion on Government Legislation, Rules and Regulations that affect General Aviation. An active history includes coordinating educational events, hosting social activities, civic involvement, and providing flight scholarship funding. The Organization also provides Social and Recreational Activities for Members and Friends. Membership is comprised of both active and retired, private and commercial pilots, and others involved in aviation.
Our associated entity, the ECOPA Education & Safety Foundation, is recognized as a 501 c3 not for profit corporation.
The ECOPA Education & Safety Foundation is dedicated to providing aspiring pilots with the opportunity to receive flight training scholarships to pursue their flying dreams! The foundation is funded through your generous donations. Thank you for your generousity!
