 Sullivan Lake Volunteers from RAF, WSPA, and WPA Deer Park



The Adopt-an-Airport Program of WSDOT Aviation uses volunteer groups to help maintain the 16 state-operated airports in Washington.

Any group or organization can sign up for the “Adopt-An-Airport” program, which offers civic clubs and other groups an opportunity to contribute to their community and state while helping to preserve and enhance the state airports. Volunteers don’t need an aviation background to become involved in the program, but by helping out, they can learn what is involved in the operation of an airport and the importance of its economic value to the local community.

Past organizations and the airports they’ve adopted include:

  • Washington Pilots Association, Seattle Chapter, Bandera;
  • WPA Harvey Field Chapter, Easton;
  • WPA Wenatchee Chapter and the Lake Wenatchee Recreational Club, Lake Wenatchee;
  • Tri-cities WPA & EAA, Little Goose;
  • WPA Green River Chapter and RAF, Ranger Creek;
  • Washington and Idaho Back Country Pilots, Rogersburg;
  • WPA Paine Field Chapter, Skykomish;
  • Cessna 180/185 Owners Club, Stehekin;
  • WPA Deer Park Chapter, WSPA, and RAF, Sullivan Lake;
  • Drift Away Snowmobile Assoc, Tieton;
