IFALPA Conference

General Information

Each year, IFALPA holds a general assembly in the form of a four-day conference where nearly 500 participants, representing over 50 Member Associations, meet with other professionals in the airline pilot community to discuss current industry developments and recommend policies to promote the highest level of flight safety.

78th IFALPA Conference

The 78th IFALPA Conference, set to take place in Mexico City, will offer participants the chance to attend the Global Pilot Symposium on May 9th and the Conference from May 10th to 12th.

Building upon last year's "Call to Action" addressing Reduced Crew Operations (RCO), this year's GPS will delve deeper into the upcoming challenges for the industry. Attendees can expect updates on the previous Call to Action and insights from Member Associations on their campaigns on RCO and eMCO.

The Conference will provide the opportunity to share industry updates among others on areas including flight operations, air traffic services, safety management, pilots’ fatigue, and dangerous goods. An exclusive session will provide invaluable insights into the workings of ICAO, the formulation of international regulatory standards, and how pilots can effectively influence decision-making to ensure operational considerations are embedded in the regulatory framework.

This event is an invaluable opportunity for pilots to exchange knowledge, strategize, and shape the future of aviation safety and regulation and to reach out to local aviation organizations.
