ALPA

Leadership From the Cockpit

The results are in: WestJet pilots have voted to join ALPA!

 This monumental vote wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the WestJet Organizing Committee (OC). This team of more than 125 pilots worked tirelessly to unify their pilot group under a positive message which was pro-WestJet, pro-pilot, and pro-ALPA.

Capt. Bob Schneberger (US Airways, Ret.) remembers when he first laid eyes on the 1934 Stinson Reliant SR-5A in the summer of 2013 at the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh fly-in and convention.

The former Eastern, Trump Shuttle, and US Airways pilot immediately fell in love with the airplane and introduced himself to the Stinson owner, Keith Swalheim, to inquire about purchasing the airplane. As a result, Schneberger became the next in a long line of the airplane’s titleholders.



As the largest airline pilot union in the world, ALPA is uniquely committed to safety, in large part because of our founding members' determination to build safety into the core structure of the Association. For more than 85 years, generations of airline pilot representatives have maintained the integrity of ALPA’s motto, “Schedule with Safety”.
