Thank you for your interest in the Catholic Aviation Association!
The Catholic Aviation Association (CAA) has been created to serve, support, and equip ALL the People of God in every segment of the aviation community. We want to help all those interested in aviation achieve their aviation-related goals in an environment where they can find fellowship with like-minded people, in a supportive community.
We believe CAA is an INSPIRATION for OUR TIMES that can address the increasing isolation of individuals, the decline of our culture and its underlying moral values, and the problems being experienced in general aviation today:
- The decrease in the pilot population
- The lack of young people entering the world of aviation
- The high cost of flight training
- The high cost of flying
- The high cost of acquiring and maintaining an aircraft
- The increasing difficulties CFI’s are finding in building flight time
By joining together in the spirit of solidarity, we can create within the aviation world a central organization to support local communities where we can support each other and grow in our FAITH. By growing in our faith we will be able to live a more joyful life and present a positive Christian witness in our sphere of influence.
Through a cooperative approach to establish local CAA Chapters and a network of flying clubs, to be known as Cupertino Aviation Clubs (CACs), we will increase the opportunity to be involved in aviation related activities. In the spirit of subsidiarity, Chapters and Clubs will be run by their members.
At this time, we are building our organization. Our FLIGHT PLAN has been developed. We submitted a 501(c)(3) application to obtain non-profit status from the IRS in December of 2013 and anticipate approval in the Spring of 2014.
Now, we are now in the process of finding people who want to help us obtain the financial resources and develop the materials to build the Headquarters organization, get the first CAA Chapters started and get the first Cupertino Aviation Clubs launched.
This is where YOU come in. CAA is a non-profit, VOLUNTEER organization. YOU will play a vital role in helping us build this organization. YOUR interests, experiences, talents and resources are necessary for us to grow and realize our full potential. With that thought in mind, PLEASE:

Whatever your interest or involvement in aviation, we are here to serve you. PLEASE COME ONBOARD!
Come Fly with Christ,
Thomas J. Beckenbauer
