KALPA IS AN AFFILIATE OF IFALPA
IFALPA stands for the International Federation of Air Line Pilot’s Association.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. 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 organise on an international basis. This was the reason for the birth of IFALPA in April of 1948 during a conference of pilots’ associations held in London for the express purpose of providing a formal means for the airline pilots of the world to interact with ICAO. The belief then was that the unique perspective of pilots operating in scheduled flying would be of critical benefit to the creation and adaptation of ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) through which ICAO regulates international civil aviation. This belief holds true today backed up by 60 years of experience. Today IFALPA numbers over 100 Member Associations and represents in excess of 100,000 pilots.
At KALPA we have worked carefully to select the right highly trained personnel to properly manage the organization tasks. We are aiming at establishing continuous training programs to enhance the existing expertise.
