In 2019, Regular monthly meetings begin with a social "collation" with complimentary pizza and conversation, followed by a short business discussion, then an informative and interesting presentation focused around many aspects of aviation, including aviation history, current developments and future innovations, as well as FAA "Wings" Seminars.  A 50/50 raffle to benefit the annual CAPA "Red Beach" scholarship fund rewards one lucky participant with a cash prize. 

Recent speakers have included New England Coast Guard Commander Eric Bader, AOPA Safety Foundation president Bruce Landsberg, former AVEMCO president Jim Lauerman, FAA Regional Administrator Amy Lind Corbett, Cape Air president Senator Dan Wolf, Mass. DOT Aeronautics head Chris Willenborg, Barnstable Airport manager  Roland "Bud" Breault, Terrefugia "flying car" founder Carl Dietrich, and Tim Duffy, one of the two F-15 pilots who scrambled to New York City on 9/11.  Speakers also include experts on Light Sport, FAA inspectors, banner tow pilots, airline pilots, trans-oceanic ferry pilots, and FAA flight inspectors. 

The regular monthly meetings are held at Rectrix Aerodrome Center, Barnstable Municipal Airport, on the first Wednesday of the month beginning at 6:30 PM . The street address for Rectrix is 730 Barnstable Road, Hyannis MA 02601. There is plenty of parking as well as handicap access.


Twice a year we spend a festive evening of socializing with fellow members of the Cape flying community at the Hyannis Golf Club.  This annual event has become extremely popular, and we invite members to bring friends and family.  The evening begins with an hour of tasty hot hors d'oeurves in the bar, then into the Terrace Room for a fabulous five course meal.  The meeting concludes with a photo presentation of members best aviation photos.

Each August following EAA Airventure we hold a pilot's cookout at Falmouth Air Park, which becomes an opportunity for members to either drive in or fly in and show off their aircraft.   


 CAPA membership fee is only $36 and is always accompanied by a really nice gift for dues paying members.  Past gifts have included waterproof flight bags, high powered LED flashlights, CAPA baseball caps, CAPA coffee mugs, CAPA clock/calendars, and CAPA aircraft mini-tool kits., all emblazoned of course with the proud CAPA wings.
