Membership Qualifications

A CAA fuel program member must meet the following qualifications:

  1. Operate at least one (1) turbine/diesel powered aircraft.
  2. Aircraft on membership must NOT be listed on a Part 135 certificate at any time.
  3. Have a valid e-mail address.
  4. Management Companies and/or Members representing multiple owners are allowed to join.

Note: Aircraft used for Commercial Air Service or listed on a US FAA Part 135 Certificate are not eligible. In addition, if an aircraft is listed as Part 135 during the duration of your CAA membership, no refunds will be given.

*Any CAA member who causes harm to CAA's program or reputation can be removed from the program.*

How to Join CAA?

Simply fill out our “Free Trial Application” located under the “Quick Links.” As long as your aircraft isn’t already listed on another active membership, your application is usually processed and approved the same day, between the hours of 8:00 AM CST and 5:00 PM CST, Monday through Thursday and 8:00 AM CST and 2:00 PM CST, on Friday. Weekend or holiday submissions will be processed the next business day.

Membership Verification

CAA membership follows your tail number. When you land at a CAA Preferred FBO, they are required to verify membership through the N Number Search on our website. You may also print a membership card (located under the Quick Links) to keep in your aircraft, however the card is only good for that renewal year which is why we recommend downloading the CAA App and using the digital membership card which will automatically update every time you renew your membership.

Member Voting

Voting for FBOs opens monthly on the first calendar day of each month at 7:00am CST and ends at 8:00am CST on the eighth calendar day. CAA members have seven days to vote on all new, renewal and competitive bids. All members’ votes are recorded electronically. All FBOs in a vote must be open for business. Fuel Program Members are required to login to vote. This requirement ensures only one vote per membership. CAA asks that only members who utilize the airport vote. However, CAA does not prevent other members from voting if they so choose. Once all votes are counted, a final determination is made. All bidding FBOs will be notified of the final results. Bidding FBOs will be given the percentage of the vote each received. The FBO with the highest percentage of the vote will be awarded a three-year contract. Non-competitive bids must achieve a net 35 yes votes to be awarded a contract. In the event of a tie vote, the incumbent CAA FBO wins. If there is no incumbent, the CAA Board of Directors will vote to determine the winner.
