International Civil Aviation Day was established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), to recognize the importance of aviation and international air travel.
The International Federation of Air Line Pilots´ Associations (IFALPA) will be celebrating the 70th Anniversary of its founding throughout 2018.
IFALPA was established in 1948 by national pilot associations from around the world to ensure that pilots would have a voice in the newly formed United Nations specialized agency, ICAO. Significant improvements in aviation safety, human performance and security are the result of our work with ICAO, regulators, and other industry stakeholders.
Over the past seven decades, IFALPA has been an internationally respected expert group and strong advocate for aviation safety on behalf of over 100,000 airline pilots in nearly 100 countries. IFALPA has made its mark as part of the aviation nexus to make global aviation safe, secure and sustainable for everyone.
The International Federation of Air Line Pilots´ Associations represents more than 100,000 pilots in nearly 100 countries around the globe. The mission of IFALPA is to promote the highest level of aviation safety worldwide and to be the global advocate of the piloting profession; providing representation, services and support to both our members and the aviation industry.
