KALPA is an umbrella association for pilots in Kenya with membership drawn from major airlines within the country. Kenya Airline Pilots Association was initially known as the East African Pilots Association prior to the breakup of the East African community in 1978. The association held its first elections in 1978 and registered it’s first CBA in 1987. KALPA works towards ensuring good working conditions for its members, focuses on flight safety and acts as a representative voice for professional pilots in Kenya.
Kalpa members make up the majority of the pilot fraternity in Kenya, all united under one union. Currently Kalpa has about 500 professional pilots in its membership. Some of these members constitute the executive council that is the leadership of Kalpa .
