The ALPA Education Committee provides a critical link for the Purdue University students and their Purdue University alumni who are professional ALPA aviators. Currently, we have a mentorship program in operation that is exceeding our expectations. We have partnered with the Purdue Professional Pilot program under the direction of Prof. John Young and Prof. Brian Dillman. We visit the West Lafayette campus at least once per semester, providing students with a current events presentation and Q & A sessions.

In coordination with the United MEC and United Airlines, ALPA's Education Committee organized a field trip for approximately 50 students from Purdue University and Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology at Saint Louis University to gain operational knowledge and get an inside look at the piloting profession.
