In 2015, 1 out of 6 pilots was atypically employed – a worrying trend of airlines substituting directly employed pilots with contractors to reduce costs. This is why the EU Commission appointed Ricardo to carry out a study to explore the employment & working conditions of aircrews in Europe.
On 6 March 2018, we held our 2018 General Assembly.
On 17 November, IFALPA published a Safety Bulletin on operations at Palermo airport.
Due to WIP at LICJ, reduced runway lengths can be further affected by the lack of runway edge lights and ILS. Therefore in certain wx conditions, the airport would be technically closed at night. At the same time Trapani airport (LITC) (first alternate) may be partially closed!
Adoption of Constitution & Bylaws
BeCA Office, 18 December, 11:00 AM

As a consequence, we are organizing an Extraordinary General Assembly. Several reasons convinced us of the necessity to update our Constitution and Bylaws:
Nobody should be afraid to speak up, be a whistle blower or stick his/her neck out. Yet a handful of European airlines still prefer to intimidate, subtly pressure or completely silence their crews. Management strategies from the union-busting handbook have obstructed pilots from speaking with one voice.
Some who dared to speak up in the past were singled out, disciplined or fired.
