Key Men Society


Dear Fellow Anchorage Pilots,


One of the moments I was most proud of this last week, at the ALPA Board of Directors meeting, was when I was able to accept an award on behalf of the ANC pilots as an inaugural member of the Key Men Society. The Key Men Society is named after the 24 “Key Men” who founded ALPA, and recognizes Local Councils whose PAC participation is 24% or greater. Only five councils are inaugural members, and I’m so proud to say ours is one of them (LAX and CGN are also members, as well as one DAL and one UAL council.)


It is truly an honor to recognize the leadership of the following pilots who made this award possible; your PAC donations truly make a difference in improving our careers:

Here’s our challenge – it’s critical we increase our PAC participation – now is the time to step. LAX has over 30% of their pilots donating to the PAC, and CGN is over 45%. How about a little domicile rivalry that actually helps preserve our careers and put food on the table? We can certainly do better. Whether it’s $1, $10, or $100 per month, every little bit helps. Click here to learn more – payroll deductions, checks, and credit cards accepted.


While half of a pilot’s career is determined by our contractual rules, the other half is controlled by regulations. This is why it is so critical that we must support ALPA’s Legislative Affairs Team on Capitol Hill in their efforts to educate our legislators on pilot issues. As one of the most bi-partisan PACs, ALPA PAC is PRO PILOT! ALPA-PAC opens the doors on Capitol Hill so that our educators can be educated on pilot issues. The pilotpartisan.com website has more details an information to learn more.


Thank you to the pilots above who earned this prestigious award on behalf of our council, our efforts do not go unnoticed. I ask the other 75% of the ANC pilots, what are you waiting for? Please step up and donate now!


We Are ALPA and the PAC helps make our future a better one,
