The European Cockpit Association (ECA) represents the Federation’s interests in Europe.
ECA is the representative body of European Flight Crews at European Union (EU) level. In 2006, IFALPA and ECA signed a Cooperation Protocol which made ECA the representative body of IFALPA in Europe. ECA closely cooperates and coordinates its activities and positions with IFALPA through its Working Groups structure (similar to IFALPA Committees). ECA is the point of contact for all European issues and interactions with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
