ALPA

Leadership From the Cockpit

As millions of passengers rely on air travel this holiday season to visit family and ship gifts around the globe, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recently launched a new campaign, “Pack Safe,” to raise awareness of the dangers associated with packing hazardous materials in carry-on and checked baggage. ALPA is proud to be a key partner with the FAA on this new campaign that provides detailed information on how passengers can safely travel with certain items that are considered to be hazardous if packed improperly.

This Thanksgiving, ALPA continues to be grateful for the dedication and tireless efforts of the 61,000 member pilots who are working this week to keep an estimated 54.3 million passengers safe and secure. Flying remains the safest mode of transportation in the world, and that is because pilots are trained for life to keep flying safe.

This Sunday, November 4, marks the end of daylight saving time (DST). It’s the time of year to set your clocks back one hour before going to sleep on Saturday (extra hour of sleep!).

When it comes to our nation’s airspace, there are really only two end-users of this valuable resource—pilots and air traffic controllers. Each day, these professionals work collaboratively to ensure that millions of passengers and thousands of tons of cargo move safety and efficiently through North America’s airspace.
