CJAA Creed

Classic Jet owners, operators, suppliers, instructors, and maintenance personnel from around the world make up the Classic Jet Aircraft Association. Together we devote our time, effort, and resources to preserve the world’s classic jet aviation heritage. The membership base of the CJAA is our greatest asset. Coming from military and civilian backgrounds, we all share a common desire to preserve our freedom to fly Classic Jets.

Over the past 25 years, CJAA Board Members and volunteers have worked with the FAA on proposed regulations to promote safety, without overly restricting, the operation of Classic Jets. We must continue our efforts to ensure we protect the freedom of all Classic Jet operators.

Recently, CJAA Board Members and volunteers:
Joined the working group to develop procedures for flights of experimental aircraft over stadiums and other gatherings
Worked to defend pilots caught up in issues of flight over densely populated areas
Investigated the future of ejection seat training programs
Working with the FAA requires constant vigilance and behind-the-scenes activity. Due to our small size, we have partnered with organizations such as EAA, WOA, AOPA, and others to gather the necessary support to represent ourselves effectively. Ultimately, it is the CJAA that brings the required focus and expertise to deal with the special needs and perceptions of Classic Jet Aircraft

In addition to our regulatory activities, the CJAA does many other things to promote and protect Classic Jet Operations:
Jet Blasts are gatherings of Classic Jet operators and enthusiasts focused on:
Aircraft Specific Training and Checkout
General Safety Training
Formation Flight Training
Proficiency Checks
Aerobatic Training
Building Fellowship
FAST clinics teach and practice basic formation skills to promote safe formation flying for the display of Classic Jets
CJAA gatherings at events such as Oshkosh and Sun ’N Fun are valuable support for Classic Jet operators and the unique challenges they face
Annual Conventions are important gatherings of Classic Jet Operators to:
Review and discuss the key issues facing the association and all jet operators
Conduct reviews of accident data and new strategies to improve safety
CJAA website is a resource for information on Classic Jet operations
Safety Information and Publications
Model Manager Program
CJAA Forum provides an opportunity for everyone to share and learn.
Maintenance Information and Support
Airshow Pilots List

Fundamentally, our mission is to promote and facilitate well-maintained aircraft flown by well-trained pilots.

For less than it costs to taxi to the runway, you can help CJAA make a difference. Whether you own, fly, maintain, photograph or just dream about Classic Jets, please join the CJAA and help us preserve our unique opportunity to operate these fine aircraft.
