Welcome to the PPU


You’re just about to join the newest professional pilots’ union in the world. Thank you for your support; we’re delighted you’re coming aboard.

The PPU’s here for you.

At every stage of the planning (and now running) of our union, our focus has been upon our members, first and foremost.

You’ll find us approachable, available, ready and more importantly, willing and able to act on your behalf.

Please take a moment or two to check out this home page, our welcome video and the rest of our website, with its links to everything you’ll need to know to gain the most out of your membership of the PPU.

You’ll learn about our Board and our Task Groups – the colleagues who’ve stepped up to look after your needs as a professional pilot.  You’ll also come to know the partners who are so important to the success and operation of the PPU. We’re lean, we’re efficient and we’re effective.

Please take a look at our Constitution and our Mission Statement and our FAQs section; you’ll quickly develop a feel for how we plan to protect your interests.

Our structure is simple: the PPU’s designed for fast and effective response and efficient action.

We’re member-focussed and member-driven.  Run by our members for our members.

You’ll find us honest and open in our dealings with both our members and their airline employers.

Our members’ skills, experience and knowledge form a goldmine of resource for the PPU, and we’re already benefitting from many dedicated members’ contributions.

If you have a special skill that you’d like to share, please do: we want and need to hear from you, too.

So, a new and effective chapter opens for professional pilot representation. 

Please join us.  Our strength is our membership.  YOU.

The PPU, a 21st Century Union for 21st Century Pilots.  Run by the members for the members.

Thank you.
