CCAAA Mission statement

The Cranfield College of Aeronautics Alumni Association (CCAAA) represents Cranfield alumni involved in the technology and management of aerospace and aviation, to promote wider interest in aerospace and aviation activity in general and Cranfield in particular.

The CCAAA can trace its history back to 1946 when Cranfield was established. Students formed The Cranfield Society and its members have included many famous names, such as John Fozard (Harrier) and Alan Brown (Stealth fighter). In 2001, the School of Engineering was formed by the amalgamation of the College of Aeronautics and the School of Mechanical Engineering. At the same time, the Cranfield College of Aeronautics was launched in a University-wide form as an over-arching entity bringing together all aerospace and aviation activity in the University. The Cranfield Society became the Cranfield College of Aeronautics Alumni Association.

The aims of the Association are: to promote and maintain effective communication between the members and the College of Aeronautics; to provide network opportunities for the members to meet socially and continue business awareness and development through a variety of events; to assist with the establishment and growth of national and international associations and liaison with the aerospace and aviation industry and similar associations in institutions of higher education.
