Welcome to PAPA Online!

Welcome to the Petaluma Area Pilots Association‘s website. PAPA is a group of pilots and friends of the Petaluma Airport  [o69], in Petaluma, California. Formed in 1978, PAPA holds monthly meetings, sponsors monthly Display Days for antique and classic aircraft, hosts educational seminars, and provides aviation-related scholarships. It’s an active group of pilots that live, work and fly in the Petaluma area. Join us at one of our upcoming activities and see why this is such a great place to fly!

“One mile of highway takes you one mile.
One mile of runway takes you anywhere!”

A Forward from Cliff


My name is Cliff Cochran, former Airfield Operations Officer at Travis Air Force Base and currently a graduate student at Golden Gate University.  I visited PAPA in 2011, when I gave a presentation on Travis Airspace. I’m completing my master’s degree in public administration, and as part of my thesis, request members of the Petaluma Area Pilot’s Association participate in a brief survey to obtain their opinions on transponder use.


The survey will take less than five minutes to complete and is accessed with the following link: General demographic information is requested, but responses will be kept confidential and used solely for statistical analysis. Would you be so kind to forward this survey to your members? Thank you.

to conduct the club’s important business!

The “public” is welcome too!
