The International Federation of Air Line Pilots' Associations (IFALPA) is a worldwide association of national pilots' associations. IFALPA was founded in 1948 and is based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
After the end of the Second World War as international civil aviation began to re-establish itself, pilots around the world realized that their associations could not protect them across national boundaries. Furthermore, they did not have a voice at the newly formed International Civil Aviation Organization. At a meeting in London in April 1948 a conference of pilot associations was held that formed the International Federation of Air Line Pilots' Associations. IFALPA was located in the UK from 1948 to 2012. In 2012 the Federation established its headquarters in Montreal, Canada, the global Civil Aviation Decision Making Hub, and is located near ICAO.
Connections with ICAO
IFALPA has a number of standing committees in regulatory, industrial and safety/technical areas. It also has permanent membership on a number of ICAO Panels and Task Forces to provide pilot input into regulations, design criteria, Air Traffic Management and Airport requirements just to name a few.
