Meet Our New President, Capt. Jason Ambrosi

On January 1, 2023, Capt. Jason Ambrosi began his term as our 12th president. “I am honored and humbled to begin my term as the President of the Air Line Pilots Association, Intl. As the world’s largest pilots’ union, we are 67,000 members strong and proudly represent the finest aviators in the U.S. and Canada. Over the next four years, we will build upon our 90-plus year history and continue to advance our profession and promote the power of unionism,” wrote Capt. Ambrosi in his first message as ALPA president.

During his four-year term, Capt. Ambrosi will guide ALPA through the ever-changing aviation industry as well as the generational demographic shift occurring within the union and throughout the profession. Capt. Ambrosi brings 25 years of ALPA experience that will support, engage, and inspire our newest members—and future pilots.

Capt. Ambrosi flies the 767ER at Delta Air Lines and plans to maintain his currency throughout his ALPA presidency. He began his airline flying career at Atlantic Southeast Airlines, a former Delta Connection carrier and regional airline. Hired by Delta in 2000 just 18 months prior to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Capt. Ambrosi lived through the instability of the airline industry during its darkest days and was among the many pilots furloughed after 9/11. He lost his pension when Delta Air Lines filed for bankruptcy in 2005.

While on furlough, Capt. Ambrosi worked for a charter airline where he advocated for labor representation and helped build a strong safety culture. This experience shaped him into the labor visionary he is today, understanding that unity is the common denominator among all pilots.
