There are no restrictions on who can become a member of SDPA.
New Pilots get One-Year Free Membership
The SDPA is promoting general aviation and camaraderie among pilots and aviation enthusiasts in South Dakota by giving a one-year FREE membership to NEW PILOTS who are residents in SD. By NEW pilot we mean that they have passed their check ride within 12 months of submitting an application for a free membership. This free membership program was initiated on March 22, 2008, at the SDPA meeting in Pierre. All the new pilot has to do is complete a membership application and mail it to SDPA, 307 W. Blaine, Gettysburg, SD 57442. We have mailed “new pilot” applications to the seven designated pilot examiners in South Dakota to give to new pilots passing their check ride. However, if you know of a new pilot who is a resident of SD and took their check ride outside of SD, i.e., in a surrounding state like IA, MN, ND, WY, or NE, please let us know and we will mail them an application (contact Steve Hamilton at 605-665-8448 or email at email@example.com).
