EU Jobs for EU Pilots!
On 3 April, BeCA held a Press Conference to raise awareness on three main issues that seriously threaten our jobs in the cargo sector in Belgium and Europe. We explained how (1) the traffic rights granted to Ethiopian Airlines by Ms. Galant; (2) the illegal operations performed by US operators in Europe; and (3) a proposal by the European Commission to liberalise wet lease are putting the jobs (our jobs) of hundreds of Europeans at stake.
In May 2016, we developed a user-friendly guide (restricted to our members) to ensure you all fully understand our role, our aims, our priorities, our structure and the services we offer to our members. It is organised into four main areas: what is BeCA, services and support to our members, international and European representation & team and contact. We hope you will enjoy the reading and you will better understand our big family! Our members can download it below, after logging in to the members' area.
Following the closure of the Belgian airspace on 12 April and the numerous statements circulating in the press and in the social media, we would like to share with you some factual information reported by the Belgian Guild of Air Traffic Controllers (BGATC) and by operational Air Traffic Controllers:

15 minutes to contribute to aviation safety
In 2015, in view of regulation EU 376/2014 on the reporting, analysis and follow-up of occurrences in civil aviation - which came into force on 15 November 2015 - BeCA launched a 3-year project, in the form of an online survey. It is aimed at benchmarking the level of Safety Culture in Belgium. The deidentified data will be discussed with airlines and the BCAA. This is the 2nd edition. Last year, over 400 pilots responded and we hope this year participation will be even higher. You can have a look at the results of last year's survey on our website.
