About International Federation of Air Line Pilots Associations (IFALPA)

Shortly after World War II, the United Nations Organisation came into being and soon gave birth to several specialised agencies, one of which was the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). The fact that ICAO was to make decisions on aviation policy without pilot representation immediately began to interest several pilots' Associations. The airline pilots begun to realise that they were citizens of the world in many respects; their daily work took them across the boundaries of many countries , and they were often dependent upon distant municipalities or States to provide them with the facilities necessary for their personal safety and that of their passengers. They became, therefore , vitally concerned with national and international affairs related to aviation. To exercise some control over these forces, pilots had to put themselves into a position of showing determined leadership, in aviation and to achieve this they had to organize on an international basis. This was the reason for the birth of IFALPA in 1948, with a membership initially of 13 Associations. Today IFALPA numbers over 90 Member Associations and represents in excess of 100,000 pilots. Among its cardinal principles is that there is no distinction on the grounds of race, colour, creed or politics.
