One Voice: In Solidarity

By Capt. Joe DePete, ALPA President

I feel certain I speak with one voice on behalf of all ALPA pilots when expressing my deep sense of loss at learning about the three airline pilots who lost their lives in the Atlas Air 3591 accident. As we go to press, ALPA continues to support the families, colleagues, and friends of these pilots.

Our union has contacted the NTSB and offered to assist the investigation in any way appropriate. We’re also providing technical assistance to Teamsters Local 1224, which represents the Atlas Air pilots.

As with every aviation accident or incident, the sole focus must be to allow the authorities to conduct a thorough investigation.

Our union members stand in solidarity every day, but especially at times such as these.
