MISSOURI PILOTS ASSOCIATION
The Missouri Pilots Association is a non-profit organization operating for charitable, scientific, and educational
purposes. Founded in 1953, it operates under section 501(c)3 of the IRS code. Our purpose is to promote aviation
safety in Missouri by carrying on educational, civic, and patriotic activities for our members and others. We promote
aviation safety through publications, visual presentations, meetings and seminars. Some of these activities are
presented in collaboration with other aviation organizations and with the FAA. Our members come from all walks
of life including professional pilots, flight instructors, doctors, attorneys, accountants, farmers, students,
engineers, nurses, teachers, businessmen and businesswomen to name a few. Many own their own airplanes, but that
is certainly not a requirement. All that is necessary is an interest in aviation. The MPA currently has fourteen
active chapters in the state and represents about 1,500 members. The chapters are divided geographically throughout
the state. Membership is $20.00 per year for individuals or husband and wife together.
The GATEWAY CHAPTER, founded in 1977, represents over 190 members from the metro and outlying areas. Our members
fly from all the pubic and many private airports in the area. In addition to promoting general aviation and safety
in Missouri, we also like to get together and just have fun! We welcome you to attend our Gateway Chapter meetings
on the second Wednesday of every month and also join us on our fly-outs. Our dinners and meetings are attended
by many couples, so please bring your partner and feel free to invite guests. We have been known to slip in a non-aviation
speaker at times for the non-flying spouses. Our annual picnic in June is usually held at a local airport.
We meet at THE COLUMNS, 711 Fairlane, in St. Charles. This is on the south service road for 1-70 just west of Fifth
Street. (Click Here to see a Map) The doors open at 6:00 and the buffet
line begins at 6:30 followed by the program at 7:30. We adjourn by 9:30. It is not necessary to dine with us to
attend the program at 7:30 p.m. We are a friendly and informal group, and we do ask that you make dinner reservations
by the Monday evening preceding the meeting. Current contact information is given in our newsletter on this site.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
