Washington State Passport Program for Pilots Begins April 1st

Pilots are being encouraged to visit public-use airports in the state of Washington, earn rewards, and build memories. The Fly Washington Passport Program, set to begin on April 1st, is a partnership between Auburn Municipal Airport, City of Auburn, WSDOT Aviation, Washington Pilots Association (WPA), Washington Airport Management Association (WAMA) and the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association.

Beyond motivating pilots to fly, this program supports general aviation airports, area businesses, tourism, and provides flight planning, safety, and educational opportunities.  The program relies on the voluntary participation of Washington’s public-use airports, pilots, aviation enthusiasts, and sponsors.  The ultimate objective for this program is to increase aviation economic activity and enhance general aviation visibility.

Participants, using an official Fly Washington Passport Program booklet, collect “passport stamps” at enrolled public-use airports.  Any licensed pilot from any state, and their passengers, may participate.  Participants will earn levels of recognition and prizes as they explore the airports of Washington State.
