Pilot Group Profiles: Pilots of ALPA 2017


Negotiations and agreements, mediation and mergers, challenges and opportunities all underscore the atypical industry that is the airline piloting profession. Yet despite all the change that occurs in the airline industry, for more than 85 years the hallmark of this union continues to be an unmatched dedication of advocating on behalf of airline pilots.

The motto “Schedule with Safety” continues to shape the union’s priorities and has paved the way for ALPA’s unrivaled leadership role in the aviation industry as a whole.

The collective resolve and unified voice of the 54,000 airline pilots representing the U.S. and Canada have been a critical component to keeping aviation the safest, most secure form of travel; negotiating and enforcing the strongest possible contracts for ALPA members; and ensuring the future of the airline piloting profession.
