Pilots Association


Winter Haven Pilots Association (WHPA) is a nonpolitical organization whose mission is to promote Gilbert Field and to work with airport management to make our airport the best it can be.


All pilots and friends of aviation are eligible to WHPA. You do not have to be an active pilot to be a member.


Dues are $10 per family per year (January - December).

Weekly Bulletin

A weekly bulletin is sent out by email to keep members aware of what is going on.


Activities include cookouts, two fly-outs per week, and monthly meetings.


  • Memorial Day Cookout
  • July 4th Cookout
  • Labor Day Cookout
  • Winter Haven Pilots Association Fly-In (November)
