Last week, ALPA hosted its 65th Air Safety Forum in Washington, D.C., with three days of private Air Safety Organization (ASO) committee, council, and group meetings followed by a full-day public session with speeches, in-depth discussions, and the annual awards banquet.

ALPA's president, Capt. Joe DePete, welcomed attendees to the Forum and highlighted the Association's history: "Learning from the danger that early aviators faced, airline pilots have helped lead North America to safer skies today." There has been loss along the way, unfortunately, but "we've turned pain into progress." And that progress continues. DePete reviewed an impressive list of successes ALPA has achieved and to ALPA's volunteers he said, "Thanks to you, humankind is and will forever be changed."

Bringing together pilot subject-matter experts, industry personnel, and government officials, the Air Safety Forum provides an essential step toward the successes of tomorrow—with casual conversations often sparking the first light of a solution. All told, the week epitomizes what Capt. Bob Fox, ALPA first vice president and national safety coordinator, referred to as "winning through collaboration."

Around the world, we join the millions coming together on International Women’s Day to celebrate the pioneers who have paved the way for women’s rights and made great strides for women in flight. ALPA’s female pilots, making up 6.6 percent of our pilot population, have made a significant impact on aviation and are vital to the success of the pilot profession.

 But how do we increase the number of women in flight?

Seventeen years ago, on September 11, 2001, the unthinkable happened—the very aircraft we operate each day to deliver passengers and cargo to destinations around the globe were used as weapons in terrorist attacks. And today, every time pilots and passengers fly, there are reminders of the tremendous impacts that day had on our industry.
