Dear members, Dear colleagues,
At the end of January, we informed you that the positions of BeCA Vice-Presidents for each airline were open and we invited all our members to stand up for them. The current vice-presidents were the only candidates and they will therefore run for a new 2-year mandate:

- Alain Vanalderweireldt (EA/DHL), assisted by Vinciane Cabaret (EAT)
- Delphine Saive (Jetairfly)
- Bart Smet (Thomas Cook)
- Rémi Thirion (TNT Airways)
Elections of the new Category Vice-Presidents
As per BeCA Statutes, every two years, our members have the right to apply for the position of Vice-President for all airlines. The VP's role is to represent his/her members within BeCA's executive committee and assist members with whatever issue they might face in their own airlines.
The BeCA VP will coordinate all BeCA activities within the company:

New survey for pilots
During recent years, knowledge about wake turbulence behaviour has increased, thanks to operational measurements, better understanding of physics and wake encounter flight testing. This has contributed to the introduction of new wake separation standards at major European airports, bringing operational benefits while preserving safety.
