ALPA

Leadership From the Cockpit

With the 2019 International Women in Aviation Conference behind us, ALPA would like to thank Women in Aviation International and all the conference speakers for putting on such an engaging and inspiring event. It’s always encouraging to gather as we celebrate and reflect upon the many ways in which women have advanced in aviation's past, present, and into the future.

This Sunday, March 10th, marks the beginning of daylight savings time (DST). It’s the time of year to set your clocks forward one hour before going to sleep on Saturday (one less hour of sleep!).

Cupid’s arrow can strike anywhere—even several miles above ground in the cockpit of an airplane. This time last year, we introduced six pilot couples and learned a little bit about their relationships—their communication techniques, things they’ve learned along the way, and how they keep things fresh. Their experiences and advice will always resonate, so check out these relationship tips from professional pilot couples this Valentine’s Day.



For the aviation industry, February 12 serves as an annual reminder of why airline pilots are committed to lifelong training to keep flying safe. This day marks 10 years since the Colgan Air Flight 3407 tragedy, which became a watershed for aviation safety improvements.
