New Pilots’ Association website is airborne:    

The Air Line Pilots’ Association (ALPA-SA) has launched a new-look website, reflecting the organisation’s track-record of service to the aviation industry, its growth and ongoing value as a representative body for pilots and flight deck crew.

ALPA-SA ( is a membership-driven organisation that has no commercial interest in aviation and strives to serve as the ‘national voice of pilots’.

Its service mandate includes striving for a safer system of air transportation and the application of professional standards throughout the industry, representation of members at all relevant national and international forums, as well as the exchange of pertinent technical, industrial and professional information.

The development of a new website falls in line with the organisation’s service as a portal to accurate, up-to-date information to the industry says Fanie Coetzee, President of ALPA-SA.

“Online presence is a critical component of our information distribution strategy. We operate within an information-driven industry that relies upon clear, concise and relevant detail. Our website has to reflect our standing within the industry, our links to affiliate programmes and bodies, and news that affects our members,” Coetzee explains.

Aside from providing pertinent information about the industry, Coetzee adds that in revamping the website, ALPA-SA wanted to demonstrate its maturity as a representative body and its experience in dealing with issues.

“Like any other industry operating within the current economic environment, we do face challenges of cost, of standards implementation, of available infrastructure and resources and of labour concerns. We believe it is our role to assist those who form part of the larger aviation industry in helping to address these challenges through open discussion and effective action,” he continues.

Executive leadership at ALPA-SA believe the website certainly communicates the development of the organisation and the strength it embodies in being able to keep up with- and embrace change to improve service delivery.
