One of the most effective ways ALPA pilots garner influence with the nation’s political community is through our political action committee: ALPA-PAC. By pooling donations from ALPA members, we are able to help elect pro-pilot Members of Congress who support our union's legislative agenda regardless of political affiliation. Our goal is to ensure a pro-pilot majority in the House and the Senate. ALPA-PAC also helps educate Members of Congress about who we are, what issues are important to us, and how Congress’ decisions affect our lives.
ALPA-PAC is funded 100% by voluntary contributions from ALPA members. No dues money is used for political contributions. Every year, thousands of ALPA members demonstrate their commitment to the PAC and its goals through their contributions. Some make annual donations by personal check or credit card. Others sign up for ALPA-PAC checkoff—the easiest and most efficient way to contribute.
I hope you’ll find the information on this site useful. You can find out which candidates have earned our support, catch up on ALPA-PAC news, learn about our membership clubs, and join the PAC using the links on the side of this page. You can also learn more about the PAC on our FAQ page.
ALPA-PAC is your voice in DC and across the country. If you have concerns about the PAC or have a candidate you believe we should support, let us know. All of our decisions are informed by ALPA members and your input is an essential part of the process.
I hope you’ll join me to support the PAC in 2013. We need a strong presence in DC to fight for our careers and our profession!
