Monthly Board Meeting: Second Monday of every month @ 5:30 pm U.N.O.
Members & Guests are welcome to attend.
Pilot Registration: The annual pilot registration fee of $10 goes to support the many clinics and programs of the MDT Aeronautics Division, including the Winter Survival Clinic, Aviation Career Exploration Academy, Aviation Art Contest, and the Aeronautics resource library. Registering pilots will receive a 2017 Montana airport directory and the monthly newsletter, Montana and the Sky. The information collected on pilot registration cards becomes invaluable in the event of search and rescue operations. Pilots interested in volunteering as search pilots and spotters may so indicate this on their registration card. Aeronautics staff have been working hard to process over 3400 pilot and aircraft registrations. If you have mailed your pilot and aircraft registration to the Aeronautics office and have not received your pilot registration card & airport directory or aircraft decal in the mail, please contact our office. We thank you for your patience during this busy time. For more information or questions, please contact the MDT Aeronautics Division’s main office at (406) 444-2506.
