"Warbirds are an important link to the roots of our country's freedom and military heritage. APWO's advocacy for responsible operation and maintenance practices is crucial."
"It is critical for our industry that we all come together to focus on safety and operations. Our future depends on it"
“The history of Warbirds and what they mean to this country is a rich one. They helped set a foundation for today’s passion, and we need to come together to help APWO protect and promote these treasured aircraft.”
"EAA's history is rich with the stories and heritage of Warbirds and their caretakers. Our very origins stem from the love for aviation that our founder, Paul Poberezny, discovered as a flight instructor during WWII. His commitment to the men and women who labor tirelessly to keep Warbirds and antiques in airworthy status is legendary, and we are proud to endorse the efforts of the Association of Professional Warbird Operators as they work to promote and ensure the safe ownership and operation of these important historical aircraft."
"As an operator of 6 warbirds used in a professional airshow team it is important to have the guidance of an organization that can help keep warbird pilots and owners on the right path. I believe that APWO is that organization. Their primary function will be to ensure safety with an unbiased approach in order to keep this valuable part of our history flying. The passion of this organization is the same as the warbird owner so the interests are the same!"
"Complexity requires expertise, and unique air operations require well thought-out flight plans... Warbirds are unique, limited in numbers and an important part of our American history. This flying community needs the expertise of the Association of Professional Warbird Operators to keep them flying safely!"
"There are several excellent organizations to help a warbird owner operate. Many have excellent safety programs. All of those programs tend to get trapped by the interests and focus of that particular organization. We’ve not really had an organization focused specifically on the Warbird industry and on the whole Warbird industry. It is a great time to add a Safety organization that keeps the Warbird specific picture, and also the Warbird big picture, in mind when evaluating what is reasonable and what is safe. I look forward to APWO’s growth and industry engagement."
"It’s great to see the APWO take the initiative and be proactive in addressing the issues that face owners and operators of Warbirds. We strongly support any organization that is committed to improving safety in the Warbird community. "
