Salinas Owners & Pilots Association

  SOPA activities emphasize good-time fly-outs and get-togethers including:

- Flying to nearby airports for the proverbial $100 hamburger.
- Spring and Fall trips farther away. Past trips have included the
   Idaho back country, Utah, Grand Canyon and Baja.
- B.B.Q.'s at the Salinas airport and other nearby airports.
- We also support the Young Eagles program in conjunction with EAA Chapter 204.
- SOPA members help support the California International Airshow each Fall.
- We participate in monthly flight safety programs and help sponsor an annual tenants day at the airport.
- SOPA is also a strong advocate of the airport.  We have helped to provide decision-makers with vital information about the positive contribution of aviation in the Salinas Valley.



SOPA is a non-profit California corporation promoting aviation fellowship, advocacy and education from our base at Salinas Municipal Airport.  We meet the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM at the Landing Zone Restaurant located in the terminal building.
