About the MPA

  1. 1. About MPA• The Maritime Patrol Association (MPA), a 501 (c) (3) Florida non- profit corporation• Professional organization representing the U.S. Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance community• "I want to thank those who have made this association a reality,” said Rear Admiral Michael W. Hewitt, U.S. Navy. “As we close out the first 100 years of Naval Aviation and celebrate the rich heritage of the Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Force, I look forward to a bright future with the P-8A Poseidon and BAMS UAS. Now that we have begun the complex transition from a legacy aircraft that has served us well for over fifty years, it is more important than ever to bring together our past, present, and future warriors. Synergistic efforts between those great Americans assigned to our squadrons, the organizations that support them, and our many dedicated industry partners will continue to deliver unmatched capability to the Fleet. Continuing communication and collaboration between Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Force and our civilian partners is vital to our overall success.“ - From MPA press release dated 9/27/2011
