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 260 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 flyouts on Sundays.  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 and Silverton Colorado.

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…
