CAPA’s first gathering was held on September 11, 2008 in Charlotte, NC.  There were mixed emotions regarding    scheduling our first meeting on such an important date.  After much deliberation, it was unanimously decided to move  forward and celebrate the spirit of the U.S. and aviation.  It was a great time to band together and network within our  industry on a local level.

 The turn-out that night was beyond expectation, with 25+ schedulers, dispatchers and vendors in attendance. Soon  after, we opened the group up to pilots, maintenance techs, flight attendants – anyone with a connection to business  aviation.  

 Our goals are to:

  • Supporting business aviation as an integral part of the local and surrounding business communities. 
  • Promoting the values of professional practices, ethical conduct and standards of safety
  • Working within the public sector to educate and inform our communities of the benefits business aviation can provide
  • Demonstrate the significant role business aviation plays within the Carolinas and in the national transportation system
  • Increasing member visibility through networking opportunities and business referrals
  • Informative speakers & events
  • Marketing & advertising opportunities

 To  date, meetings have been held in Raleigh, Charleston, Greenville, Greensboro, Charlotte and Concord.
