USAPA stands for US Airline Pilots Association. We are a union comprising the 5,200 mainline pilots that fly for US Airways. We formed our union based on the principles of democracy, transparency and free thought. We strive to create an environment where our pilots have all the tools needed to focus on the efficiency and safety of each of their flights.
Organizationally, USAPA is governed by our Board of Pilot Representatives. Our Board is elected by our pilots from the individual pilot domiciles throughout our mainline US Airways system.
USAPA’s mission is to ensure safe flights for our passengers by guaranteeing that their lives are in the hands of only the most qualified, competent and well-equipped pilots. USAPA will fight against any practices that may jeopardize our pilots’ training, equipment, workplace environment, compensation or work/life balance, or compromise our pilots’ ability to execute the optimal flight.
We pride ourselves on being the most senior and experienced group of commercial pilots in the United States. Our pilots come from various backgrounds in private, commercial and military aviation. We fly our passengers to over 180 destinations, including Europe, Israel, Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, South America, Mexico and the Caribbean.
Our experienced pilot group is in charge of a wide fleet of jet aircraft, including the Embraer E-190, Boeing B-737-300/400 and B-757/767 series, the Airbus A319/320/321 series, the Airbus A330-200, and the Airbus A330-300.
