I am a pilot. We are BALPA.
BALPA is the union and professional association for pilots in the uk. Our members work together to protect the piloting profession and strive to ensure flight safety remains an industry wide priority.
Our community is made up of members, elected pilot representatives and pilot volunteers, managed by a pilot executive, and supported by expert staff members and professional specialists.
As an organisation of highly-trained flight deck professionals, BALPA has unrivalled access to the expertise and experience of its 10,000 members and can truly be regarded as the voice of pilots.
Together we lobby government, negotiate with employers and work with regulators to safeguard jobs and benefits, to ensure piloting remains a rewarding profession and to keep safety at the heart of all we do.
BALPA is the UK’s biggest pilot community. We offer chances to network within that community and provide industrial, legal, employment and personal support to assist members though every stage of their career.
