Airport Safety Liaison Training (ASL)

Course Content

The most effective interface ALPA pilots have with the managers of the airports they use is through ALPA’s Airport Safety Liaison (ASL) Program. The ASL provides a line pilot’s perspective to airport managers and municipal governments; the levels of technical and regulatory knowledge required to function in the ASL position demands a comprehensive and motivating training program. 

Subjects covered include

  • ALPA structure and administration
  • Airport contacts and procedures
  • Review of CAR 300 & FAR Part 139

Desired knowledge and skills upon completion

  • Demonstrate a functional knowledge of ALPA Safety Structure administration
  • Capable of working effectively with government and municipal airport representatives
  • Capable of effectively representing pilot concerns to airport management
  • Motivated to become the resident expert in all aviation matters concerning his airport
  • Employ and enhance the knowledge gained in previous accident investigation training.


When in ASL training, your MEC/CASC budget pays for all of your pilot expenses: travel, sleeping rooms, meals, and flight pay loss (if required). This includes no-shows for hotel rooms where reservations have been requested and NOT canceled 48 hours prior to arrival and/or if the attendee fails to notify the hotel, during check-in, of a different departure date than the one reserved.
