We are inviting all of our club members to become active participants in a critical examination of CAA.

At this regular Thursday meeting you will have an opportunity to learn what others have concluded, express your conclusions as to our present circumstances and share your solutions.

So in preparation for this most important get together, please think about what CAA means to you and what you would like to see us become.

Cockpit of Lancair Columbia 300

 

This is our featured speaker, talking about his trip, circumnavigating the globe.

“On May 26, 2019 the 69-year-old Bainbridge Island man pulls back on the yoke of his Lancair Columbia 300 and takes off from Bremerton National Airport, bound for Alaska. He crosses into Russia, flies down into Japan, through South Korea into China, up through Mongolia back into Russia, through Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan on over to Turkey, across Europe, over Greenland, Canada and back into the United States.”

 

 

Columbia Aviation Association is located at the Aurora State, Oregon Airport (UAO).  CAA was founded in 1949 as a private organization devoted to flying.  After being located at the Portland International Airport (PDX) for forty five years, members completed the beautiful new Aurora clubhouse in 1996.  Membership is by invitation only and requirements include possession of a private pilots certificate.  Most of the club’s 175 members have advanced ratings and are aircraft owners who fly on a regular basis for business and pleasure.

Regular meetings are held every Thursday evening from 6:00pm to 9:30pm with a social hour, dinner and a guest speaker.  Special events are held quarterly and there are breakfast/lunch flyouts on the weekends.  BBQs and brunches are scheduled at the clubhouse during the year to engage in our favorite past-time of hangar talk. 

Each year members organize several cross-country flying trips provide members and their families an opportunity to participate in exploring the USA and abroad.  Recent destinations have included Jackson Hole, Joseph, San Juan Islands, Sunriver, SunValley, Victoria BC, Catalina California, McCall Idaho, Lake Chelan, Rogue River and Northern California.

Whether it is attending the weekly meetings, participating in the annual Flight Profile pilot training program, attending a major dinner event, participating in aviation related issues and projects or flying across the country together, the Columbia Aviation Association members share a rich camaraderie based on the love of aviation and  flying…
