MONTREAL, BRUSSELS -
As the war in Ukraine intensifies, IFALPA and ECA stand in solidarity with the pilots, crew, and people of Ukraine:
“We are deeply concerned for our Ukrainian friends and colleagues who are facing a Russian attack against their country, their freedom, and their people,” says Jack Netskar, IFALPA President. “We have been in touch with the leadership of the Ukrainian Pilots Association, UALPA, since the start of the invasion and offered our support. Our colleagues in Ukraine are bravely facing this new hostile reality and have expressed the desire for a quick and peaceful resolution.”
“The people of Ukraine have shown an incredible strength and resilience in the face of aggression and violence. The pilot community will continue to offer support and assistance to our colleagues and their families,” says ECA President Otjan de Bruijn.
We will continue to work with our Ukrainian brothers and sisters and do everything in our power to ensure that they feel the full support of the global pilot community.
