GPS2018: The Trail Ahead
This year's eighth annual Global Pilots' Symposium (GPS VIII) combines the efforts of the International Federation of Air Line Pilots' Associations (IFALPA) with pilot leaders from the three global alliances - the Associations of Star Alliance Pilots (ASAP), the Oneworld Cockpit Crew Coalition (OCCC), and the SkyTeam Pilots Association (SPA), to explore the current state of affairs on the airline industry.
GPS VIII counts on the participation of industry experts offering their unique perspective on matters of labour around the world, addressing the Evolution of Global Alliances and atypical employment.
In response to the feedback from previous years, GPS VIII will bring speakers from all corners of the world to discuss the challenges and opportunities in the airline industry in different continents.
GPS has become the largest and most highly anticipated global aviation industry forum and since 2011, hundreds of the world's most influential pilot leaders, industry experts, airline executives and government officials have participated in this interactive forum and this year it won't be different. GPS is more than just talk, it's an experience where rather than just discussing issues, strategic tools are given alongside action plans for the profession at large and although there is still much work to be done towards a permanent solution, we have taken more than just the first step.
Our objective is to promote, mentor and develop the next generation of airline pilots' leaders.
