    Getreu diesem Grundprinzip setzt sich die Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) seit 1969 für die Verbesserung der Sicherheit in der Luftfahrt ein.

    Informieren

The fundamental objectives of the VC are contributing to the welfare and safety of civil aviation as well as ensuring and pursuing the interests of its members regarding technical affairs and industrial affairs.

Among other things, we achieve this by influencing legislation, concluding collective wage agreements, participating in decision-making for the composition of salary terms and other conditions of employment, informing the public about the professional, sociopolitical and economic situation of cockpit crews.

In addition to that more than 130 honorary members are involved with the establishment and provision of extensive professional expertise within the VC in line with various committees, which meet at regular intervals, to ensure the exchange of information and to deal with current topics, e.g. the SafeSKY Initiative.

VC is a member of the European Cockpit Association (ECA) and the International Federation of Airline Pilots (IFALPA).

Aviation stakeholders are therefore called upon to jointly address these shortcomings. read more
