Focus Is On Flights In Far Northern Areas Of North America
ALPA president Capt. Lee Moak has announced the creation of a special ALPA Presidential Committee for Remote Operations, to be chaired by Capt. Peter Black (FAB). The committee will have additional representation from ALPA carriers with operations and operational interests in the high Arctic and other remote locations in far northern areas of Canada and the United States.
The creation of this committee is another step toward ALPA’s long-standing goal of One Level of Safety and Security for airline operations. The primary focus will be to address the challenges that professional ALPA aviators overcome on a daily basis during operations in these regions. Black will be assisted by representatives from Canadian North, Alaska, Calm Air, and First Air and will request additional expertise as the need arises to properly and effectively address relevant issues.
In his formal notification to ALPA’s Executive Board and Executive Council, Moak praised the ALPA pilots currently meeting the challenges of operating in the regions, saying, “These aviators are true professionals in everything they do. They operate in a harsh, unpredictable environment using rough, unpaved runways, making approaches with basic nonprecision navaids.”
The committee will commence its work as soon as possible and will coordinate with ALPA’s Air Safety Organization and the Engineering and Air Safety Department.
