IAOPA Celebrates 50 Years Of Aviation Advocacy

Organization Holds 26th World Assembly In South Africa

Stellenbosch, South Africa was the site for the 26th World Assembly of the International Council of AOPA in April. Three days of debate produced a list of resolutions which will guide IAOPA’s work in the next few years. The IAOPA Newsletter said that delegates from ten European AOPAs were present who joined with representatives of AOPAs from every continent to celebrate 50 years of International AOPA. Hendrik Pistorius, founder of AOPA South Africa in 1956 was in attendance as a guest of honor.

AOPA South Africa’s organization led to a successful World Assembly facilitating debate between 90 representatives from 23 countries over the three day gathering. Dr Koos Marais and his team were recognized by AOPA president and CEO Craig Fuller.

Special guests at the Assembly included Mitchell Fox, ICAO's Chief of Air Traffic Management, South Africa’s Director of Civil Aviation Zakhele Thwala, and Steven Brown, the National Business Aircraft Association Vice President, Operations and Administration. John and Martha King, of the internationally successful flight training company King Schools gave a polished and well-received presentation on general aviation safety.
