RAPCAN is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to maintain and continue the close friendships and associations of its members, to promote their general welfare and to assist the transition of active pilots into retirement. Regular Members are limited to pilots who are a minimum of 50 years old, have completed a minimum of 15 years service and retire in good standing from a Canadian airline operator under Canadian Air Regulations (CAR) 703, 704 & 705. Exceptions to the 15 years of service can be made with a two thirds majority of the Board of Directors.
