Such hostility by management will not be tolerated by pilots and cabin crew
With every month, European aviation is drifting further & further away from the definition of “Social"
Exposure to ionising radiation may be understudied but is a well-known health risk factor.
CPDLC helps alleviate this saturation by providing another means of communication for aircrews and air traffic controllers.
Along with self-employment, temporary agency work, pay-to-fly schemes, etc. certain airlines in Europe are now keen to create pools of pilots to be used through their various subsidiaries and branches.
With every month, European aviation is drifting further & further away from the definition of “Social”. Despite the EU Commission’s pledge to create quality jobs, pilots have experienced a different reality – one with deterriorating conditions & social dumping.
Exposure to ionising radiation may be understudied but is a well-known health risk factor. For pilots and cabin crew – who spend their working days and nights in the air – this exposure is even more of a threat. In addition, the surge to choose nowadays more direct routes often increases
One of the biggest constraints in air traffic control today is the saturation of voice communication channels. Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications, CPDLC, helps alleviate this saturation by providing another means of communication for aircrews and air traffic controllers. It works

There is no issue with the availability of licensed pilots in most European countries. There is however a growing issue with the employer’s perceived quality of pilots graduating from the flight schools. Attracting, properly selecting and training the right candidates are the core
This position paper focuses on the challenges and the potential risks of Crew Interoperability. Its aim is to point out questions that need to be answered and risks that need to be mitigated.
ECA fully shares the concerns of AEI (Aircraft Engineers International) with regard to the practice in several EU countries that reduce the release into service by licensed engineers to a mere administrative task without any physical inspection of the work performed.
Despite the international recognition that cosmic radiation poses a workplace health risk to airline pilots, there is an immediate requirement for comprehensive research into all forms of radiation exposures of airline pilots. Keeping in mind the complexity of exposures in the cockpit
Created in 1991, the European Cockpit Association is the representative body of European pilots at EU level.
We represent over 38,000 pilots from the national pilot associations in 37 European states and 2 states from outside the European region.
We are a recognised social partner and make every effort to ensure that aviation safety is in the driving principle of future European rules.
