As an industrial organisation we protect and improve employment conditions for our pilot members. This includes assistance in negotiating enterprise agreements, representation in the event of a dispute with an employer, assistance in the event of an accident or incident and expert advice on award and agreement matter.

As a professional association, the Australian Federation of Air Pilots provides a forum for pilots to meet and discuss all aviation related matters. The AFAP has an active Safety & Technical Committee which contributes expertise towards the development of Australian and international aviation safety standards. As part of the AFAP's welfare portfolio, we provide a pilot peer support network of trained pilot representatives, a Member Assistance Program (MAP) available 24/7 and maintain a partnership with HIMS Australia.
