BALPA represents well over 75% of all the fixed wing pilots and helicopter aircrew based in the UK - as well as many working overseas. We have a membership of over 10,000 professional flight crew, working in companies large and small.

Together we are united in the interests of British Airline Pilots.

BALPA works with the Civil Aviation Authority, the Department for Transport, the Department of Trade and Industry and many other bodies where the voice of ‘the pilot' is needed.

BALPA is regularly quoted in the national and regional media about our campaigns and representation work on behalf of members.

BALPA campaigns on a wide variety of issues which affect pilots and the flying public. From the aircraft work environment through to security and safety, BALPA works with the industry and government to ensure that its members and the public are looked after.
