AOPA UK Student Pilot Membership
Student Membership is available for up to 2 Years for Student Pilots, subject to payment of a £20 Registration fee to cover administration costs. This fee will be refunded in full against the purchase of Pilot or Instructor Membership for you on expiry of your Student Membership, using the online Expired Student Membership Upgrade option to make your purchase. NOTE: Associate Membership does not apply. To qualify for AOPA UK Student Membership you :-
- must have a valid UK postal address
- must fully complete the application details
- must not have held an AOPA UK Student Membership before
- must be undertaking a recognised flight training course for a Pliots licence at a registered UK based Flight Training Organisation
- do not hold, or have not held, a Pilot licence issued by any National Authority
Student Membership is valid for 2 Years from the date of joining or until issue of a Pilot Licence, whichever is the earlier, at which point you will need to purchase Pilot or Instructor Membership, using the online Expired Student Membership Upgrade option, to continue to receive the full benefits of AOPA UK membership and be refunded.
If you fail to upgrade you will not be able to receive Member benefits, including advice and support if you have an incident that may result in your prosecution by the CAA or other Authority.
AOPA is here to support you in your flying after you have obtained your licence.
When you have obtained your first Pilot Licence you will be eligible for a FREE Bronze Wings Award.
You can then progress, though further experience, to higher levels of Wings Awards.
The Wings Award Scheme is designed to give you a structured path to extend your flying experience and enjoyment.
The AOPA Mentoring Scheme is there to help you in progress your flying skills by putting you in touch with experienced pilots who are willing to share their flying experience with you.
