FlightPAC - A Contribution to Our Future

MEC Government Affairs Committee

Political Action Committees (PACs) are organizations created by corporations, business, labor and trade organizations to raise money and make financial contributions to federal political candidates that support their legislative agenda.

AFA’s FlightPAC was founded in 1982 to support bipartisan political candidates who are most likely to promote Flight Attendant issues. Governed by federal election laws, FlightPAC is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of AFA members. Membership dues are never contributed to political campaigns. Without our contributions to FlightPAC, we would not be as successful in promoting aviation safety and our careers as safety professionals and aviation’s first responders.

Laws that protect Flight Attendants and improve our quality of life, including eliminating smoking in the cabin, FMLA, OSHA protections, Known Crew Member, the Flight Attendant Drug and Alcohol Program (FADAP), and more, are in place today because Senators and Representatives who support issues of importance to Flight Attendants voted to support legislation urged by our Union. FlightPAC affords our Government Affairs Committee and activists a greater voice on Capitol Hill.

In today’s political atmosphere, it’s more important than ever that we have a strong and powerful presence in Washington D.C. We must stand together to protect our industry and make the positive changes necessary to protect our jobs and our economy.

Donate to FlightPAC today by filing out payroll deduction form and dropping it off at your Local Council Office or by mailing it to:
