The association was originally founded in1978 for the original purpose of representing the DVT general aviation tenants and negotiating reasonable fees for hangars and tie-downs. The association has been active in the maintenance of hangars, building of new hangars, establishing reasonable inspection guidelines and minimum standards, and assuring continued access to services of Independent Mechanics and Flight Instructors.



Effectively advocate for the general aviation tenants of Phoenix Deer Valley Airport ("DVT") regarding hangars, tie-downs and general aviation activities conducted on the airport. We work closely with airport administration representing the general aviation interests of pilots and aircraft owners. Deer Valley Pilots Association takes a proactive and collaborative approach to representing tenants concerns and aspires to make DVT the "BEST" general aviation airport possible.
