Short History

The Council on Aviation Accreditation (CAA) was established on October 18, 1988, at the University Aviation Association (UAA) Annual Meeting in Dallas. The CAA initially functioned as a subsidiary of the UAA for administrative support. However, operationally the CAA was an autonomous, legally chartered entity with directors and officers elected from within the organization.

The CAA formulated and published bylaws by which the organization is governed. These bylaws embrace the concepts and principles acceptable to and in keeping with the Council on Postsecondary Accreditation (COPA) standards. COPA was subsequently dissolved, and a new organization, the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation (CORPA) has assumed essentially the same role vis-a-vis CAA.

In March, 1994, the CAA Board of Trustees initiated action to establish accreditation standards for associate degree programs. A subcommittee of the Standards Committee was charged with developing associate degree standards for approval at the Summer 1995 meeting of the CAA. That initiative was followed in 1994 by the FAA's reorientation of the Airway Science program,and its stated intention of bestowing Airway Science recognition only on associate and baccalaureate degree programs that were accredited by CAA.
