Regional Air Cargo Carriers Association
is the only organization dedicated to
meeting the policy, communications and
information needs of on-demand cargo
aircraft operators in the United States.
More than 50 FAA-certificated air
carriers are regular members, and many
more companies involved in the service
and support of these operators have also
joined RACCA. While our members are

operate under Part 135 of the
regulations, we also have a number of
Part 121 carriers.
