The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to general aviation, was incorporated on May 15, 1939. Since then, AOPA has become the largest, most influential aviation association in the world. Members receive a monthly magazine called ‘AOPA Pilot’. Written by pilots for pilots, it includes General Aviation news, airplane maintenance tips, flying techniques, the latest innovations, flight tests, safety tips, flying experiences etc. It is a glossy A4 size magazine, with colour photos and diagrams. The first stand-alone issue was published in 1958. Prior to that time a regular column in ‘Popular Aviation’ (later ‘Flying’) kept members informed of AOPA activities.
