ALPA Allies with OSU to Develop ACE Club

The Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) and Oklahoma State University (OSU) formalized an alliance recently to develop an Aviation Collegiate Education (ACE) Club, making it ALPA’s 12th collegiate professional development and mentoring program—and its sixth new program in as many years.

   Oklahoma State is the first and only college in the Big 12 Conference to receive this honor. Alliances built between ALPA and leading aviation universities like Oklahoma State aim to promote the profession and support aspiring aviators as they prepare for careers within the airline industry. Regular visits and presentations by active airline pilots will give students practical workplace examples, emphasizing professionalism. In addition to on-campus outreach, ALPA’s Education Committee organizes annual field trips for students to tour airline operations and other aviation-related facilities. ese trips provide students with a behind-the-scenes look at how airlines operate and a first-hand experience of what it takes to be a professional airline pilot.
