CAP Flying Association (CAPFA), is one of Connecticut’s oldest flying clubs. Established in 1946, CAPFA has been operating out of Brainard Airport (HFD), in Hartford, continuously for 75 years.
CAPFA has provided educational and recreational flying opportunities for generations of general aviation student and private pilots.
As a not for profit flying club, CAPFA is dedicated to providing an affordable learning and recreational flying environment for its members.
We currently operate two aircraft. CAPFA offers an online scheduling system, reasonable monthly contributions and flying rates, liberal booking policies, as well as club CFI’s (Certificated Flight Instructors). In addition to providing high-quality and well-maintained aircraft, CAPFA provides the social camaraderie only aviation enthusiasts can appreciate.
Per our original charter, we are one of few clubs in Connecticut that admit student pilots. We also sponsor a club dinner, educational events and of course, lots of hangar talk.
Come to a monthly meeting, the third Thursday of each month at 7PM, usually (unless we’re hosting our annual dinner meeting or annual cookout meeting) in the conference room of Hartford Jet Center, located on Lindbergh Drive at Brainard Airport.
