NGPA's strength comes from the incredible people who make up the organization. As pilots and aviation enthusiasts helping each other, volunteering exemplifies the spirit of NGPA more than anything else. We can always use a hand, and volunteering is a great way to meet people and make new friends.

Executive Director Position

We are seeking an Executive Director to serve as a representative of NGPA and lead the strategic direction of the organization.  This is an excellent opportunity for an aviation leader looking for the next step in their career!  As the Executive Director, you will play a critical role in reflecting the values of NGPA's membership and delivering on NGPA's strategic mandate.  You will serve as the primary public-facing representative of NGPA and its constituents and guide a fiscally responsible operation.

Qualified candidates offer a bachelor’s degree in an aviation or management-related field. An undergraduate degree combined with a technical qualification in an aviation-related profession is also acceptable. A minimum of two years of senior leadership experience in the private or public sector, or membership on a Board of Directors in the nonprofit sector is also desired.  This position requires a Private Pilot License or other FAA-issued certificate (either past or current); however a minimum of three cumulative years of experience working in a technical/operational role in the commercial or military aviation sector will serve as an adequate substitute.  Knowledge of the operational functions, leadership structures, and regulatory responsibilities of a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is required.

If you believe you meet the requirements, please submit a resume and cover letter to the following job link (or copy/paste link to a new window):
