Pilot Life

ACPA members have a passion for flying. We value the respect accorded to our profession by the travelling public. Our member pilots strive each day to uphold high standards as we deliver our passengers, fellow crew members and aircraft safely to their destinations.

They fly some of the world’s most advanced commercial aircraft – in all kinds of conditions – to destinations around the world. Our pilots come from diverse backgrounds and have taken different routes to achieve their dreams.

Ultimately, every one of ACPA’s members has worked hard to earn their place in the sky. Pilots will tell you that their careers are highly rewarding despite the many sacrifices and challenges along the way.
