    When is The NGPA Cape Cod Classic?

    Cape Cod Classic Provincetown
    September 4, 2021

    When: Cape Cod Classic is September 15, 2022 – September 18, 2022

    Where: Various Locations

    About: The National Gay Pilots’ Association is the world’s largest organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender aviation professionals and enthusiasts.

    Since 1990 the mission has been simple: to build, support, and unite the LGBTQ aviation community worldwide. Over thirty years ago a handful of gay pilots discreetly gathered in Provincetown, Massachusetts. They coordinated their meeting by responding to an ad and agreeing to wear an aviation themed t-shirt in order to identify each other. Anonymity was maintained by not using any last names since they risked losing their jobs or dishonorable discharge from the military for being gay. This was the first NGPA event. It’s from these humble beginnings that a global movement was born.

    Set against the classic backdrop of New England, the Cape Cod Classic is the NGPA’s flagship East Coast event. It is always a member favorite, and is held in the gayest town in the world, Provincetown, which provides a unique and fun environment that is highly accessible due to its proximity to Boston.

    The Cape Cod Classic provides our members an intimate opportunity to experience Provincetown while bonding over our common love of aviation. The event features breakout sessions, a general aviation-themed keynote address, fly-in, and formal dinner banquet, among other activities.

    Our event app describes the weekend’s events in great detail and also includes important travel and transportation logistics as well as attendee networking opportunities. Check back early fall to download the app.

    We hope you’ll join us on Cape this September!
