APSA is a nonprofit educational, individual membership organization founded in 1968 to support, promote and advance the safe and effective utilization of aircraft by governmental agencies in support of public safety missions through training, networking, advocacy and educational programs. Our organization is over 3,500 members strong from the international to the local level. Air Beat Magazine is a valued resource and ongoing communication link that members keep and share because of its unique editorial scope.
APSA produces Air Beat magazine, its official bi-monthly journal, as well as a Conference Preview Issue and an Annual Buyer’s Guide. The six bi-monthly issues are each based around a particular theme (see the Editorial Calendar) with supporting feature articles highlighting methods, equipment and practical applications. Action items such as board nominations, award nominations, scholarship applications and proposed by-law changes are regularly disseminated through Air Beat magazine. All of this, along with its high quality and professional approach, make Air Beat magazine the "go to" source for the public safety aviation community.
Each year, APSA conducts an Annual Conference & Exposition (APSCON). The organization also produces several Safety Seminars each year in convenient locations throughout the United States and Canada. Focusing on all aspects of public safety aviation, APSA offers courses and classes at each of these events, taught by professionals with years of experience. Maintenance, equipment, missions, weather, and airborne tactics & techniques are just some of the topics covered — all delivered with an emphasis on safety. In addition to the extensive courses and classes, APSA’s three day conference highlights the latest in technologies, equipment and services for public safety aviation. Your company’s exhibit allows for hands-on evaluation and comparison by unit decision makers and end-users involved in the purchasing process. On a smaller scale, vendor tables at the Safety Seminars offer similar opportunities.
These events, the APSA website, the monthly digital e-newsletter, and Air Beat Magazine, provide a networking system for members to share information and learn from each other constantly, enhancing the likelihood that our vision will be realized – that is, the safe and successful completion of each airborne public safety mission. APSA appreciates your support in helping to make this happen!
