NGPA Launches Business Memberships

St. Louis Park, MN, March 14, 2023 –

The National Gay Pilots Association (NGPA) is excited to launch its new Business Membership program, a new way for businesses, flight schools, and organizations to support NGPA. Business Memberships open your organization to benefits and visibility within the LGBTQ+ aviation industry. A Business Membership with NGPA will reinforce an organization’s commitment to diversity within aerospace to their stakeholders.

Business Members receive a range of benefits, including visibility on NGPA’s website and member publications, priority access to NGPA’s inclusion training and scheduling, the ability to list job openings on NGPA’s member-only jobs page, and three complimentary individual memberships for employees, plus more.

“A corporate membership is a great way for businesses to show their support to the LBGTQ+ aviation community and proudly display their affiliation to NGPA. We hope this new membership opportunity provides another connection point for NGPA members across all functions within the industry,” said NGPA Executive Director Justin Ellixson-Andrews.

Business Memberships are available for purchase now at an annual cost of just $500 and are valid for 365 days from the date of purchase. As part of the membership process, all businesses will be required to sign a pledge in support of the LGBTQ+ community. Join NGPA today and take a stand for diversity in aviation.
