- Reference No
The Australian Federation of Air Pilots operates as both a trade union and a Professional Association of all Air Pilots in Australia. Its role as a union is to protect and improve conditions of employment of its members.
The organisation of the Federation is based on six State branches which are governed by Branch Committees elected by the pilot members. The Branch Committee in turn elect officers and delegates to an Executive Committee and Convention. The Principal Officers of the organisation, such as the President, are elected by secret postal ballot by all financial members of the Federation.
The Federation is able to directly represent, in industrial matters, all pilots making a living out of flying with the exception of Military, Ansett and Qantas pilots.
