John Hornibrook Named Chief Pilot At Alaska Airlines

Joined The Carrier As A Second Officer In 1991

Captain John Hornibrook has been named as the Chief Pilot for Alaska Airlines, overseeing its 1,416 line pilots.

Hornibrook joined Alaska Airlines as a second officer in March 1991 and quickly progressed to first officer before stepping into the captain seat in January 1999. In addition to serving as Air Line Pilots Association Council 67 committee chairman, Hornibrook was also chairman of ALPA's Central Air Safety Committee, Training Committee and Training Board Committee.

"With more than 20 years of flying for Alaska Airlines, serving many roles within ALPA and his experience prior to joining us, John has multiple strengths that uniquely qualify him for this challenging role," said Gary Beck, Alaska Airlines' vice president of flight operations.

Hornibrook replaces Tom Kemp, who served as chief pilot since 2006. Kemp recently became Alaska Airlines' managing director of standards, fleet and operational control, and director of operations.

Prior to joining Alaska Airlines, Hornibrook flew for Great Lakes Aviation and was an instructor at Buffalo Aviation, a small fixed-base operator in Buffalo, Minn. He earned a bachelor's degree in aviation technology from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota.
