Spartanburg Pilot’s Association’s inaugural meeting was January 9, 2012 with more than 60 pilots in attendance. Since its inception, our goal has been to bring together like-minded pilots, aspiring pilots and aviation enthusiasts and all of their collective skills, so we can share them with each other. When you join, you add to our collective skill set and strengthen us as a whole.

As a member, you have access to initial and continued training. SPA conducts private pilot and IFR ground school classes twice per year. These classes are NO COST to members and prepare students for the FAA Private or Instrument Knowledge Tests.

Two flight simulators are available for member use.

In addition, SPA members have access to a diverse library of educational material. Audio, video and printed materials are available for your use.

At our monthly membership meetings, guest speakers talk about safety topics, upcoming events, personal stories in aviation and other aviation related topics.

Above all, you become a member of a larger group of friends to share your excitement of aviation with. As pilots, we all need to continue learning to keep our skills sharp. At SPA, we have friends who are student pilots, Sport Pilots, Glider Pilots, Private Pilots, Commercial Pilots, active and retired military pilots, not to mention airplane mechanics. Who better to learn with and from, than these friends.
