AUSTRALIAN FEDERATION OF AIR PILOTS
Formed in 1938, the Australian Federation of Air Pilots (“the AFAP”) is the largest industrial and professional association for commercial pilots in Australia with approximately 5000 members. The AFAP is also a foundation member of the International Federation of Airline Pilots Association (IFALPA), the global body representing commercial pilots worldwide.
The AFAP’s membership coverage includes Virgin Australia pilots, Qantas owned subsidiary airline pilots (such as QantasLink and Jetstar), regional airline pilots, Australian pilots flying for overseas operators, general aviation pilots, flight instruction pilots, aero-medical pilots, corporate jet pilots, helicopter pilots and aerial agricultural pilots.
As a professional association, the members and staff of the AFAP are active in promoting flight safety and improving Australian and global aviation standards.”
AUSTRALIAN AND INTERNATIONAL PILOTS’ASSOCIATION
The Australian and International Pilots Association (AIPA) is a professional Association and federally registered organisation representing pilots employed by the Qantas Group (currently Qantas Airways Limited, Jetstar Airways Pty Limited, Eastern Australia Airlines Pty Limited, Express Freighters Australia Pty Limited, Network Aviation Australia Pty Ltd and Sunstate Airlines (QLD) Pty Limited) in airline operations within Australia and around the world.
Representing around 2,250 Qantas Group pilots in both domestic and international operations, AIPA is the largest professional body of airline pilots in Australia. It was formed in 1981 when it separated from the Australian Federation of Air Pilots (AFAP) in response to the changing aviation environment of the time and the need to enhance the industrial position of Qantas pilots.
AIPA seeks to advance the employment interests of its members and, to that end, represents individuals and the membership at large both in the workplace and in the broader aviation industry.
AIPA regularly participates in regulatory, technical and government inquiries and forums, and is recognised by various government and quasi-government bodies as having a stakeholder interest in the Australian aviation industry.
