AOPA’s Director of the Airport Support Network (ASN) program
AOPA’s Airport Support Network (ASN) is recruiting volunteers for Texas airports. The ASN program was established in 1997 when AOPA recognized the need for a grassroots effort to help prevent airport closures. Presently, there are 2,500 ASN Volunteers nationwide. Over the years, the program was grown from a defensive “save the airport” stance to a more proactive “let’s promote the airport” effort. Instead of waiting for trouble, investing the time to help a community understand the value of its local airport is an important activity we all need to support. In fact, AOPA created a form to allow members to recognize their airport sponsors and it can be found at: http://www.aopa.org/asn/recognition.cfm. AOPA wants to recognize local elected officials who are good stewards of their community airport, and thank them for their support. If your local Mayor and Council, County Commissioners, or other elected officials have done a good job overseeing your airport, please let us know.

The following is a list of some of the airports that currently need an ASN Volunteer in Texas. If you or someone you know is an AOPA member, is based at one of these airports and would like to serve as our ASNV, please visit https://www.aopa.org/asn/asnform.cfm.
