North Valley Aviation Association

The North Valley Aviation Association is comprised of individuals and groups that enjoy aviation, aircraft and flying. Those with interest in aviation are encouraged to join this group of enthusiasts. NVAA is a chapter of the California Pilots Association whose mission is to promote and preserve California's general aviation airports. (Affiliated website:

One of the main interests of the NVAA is to sponsor our youth in the love and dedication of aviation. To that end, we have developed the Chico Summer Flight Academy (SFA) program for local high school students, where several students are given the opportunity to participate in a course in ground school and in the left seat. The NVAA raises the funds necessary for this program and the students attend free. The Flight Academy was held June this year. Eight more students graduated with PIC hours, classroom training, and a firestorm of enthusiasm! For more info see the Summer Newsletter here. All contributions welcome!

The NVAA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your contributions to the NVAA and/or the Summer Flight Academy are tax deductable.
