Events & News:  None at this time
Every day a Continental pilot enters the realm of responsibility and unpredictability.  He is a professional.  The lives of those who rely on him are faceless but ever present in his conscience.  

Every day that pilot kisses his loved ones good bye as he departs for work.  In the back of his mind is the fact that he may not return.

In the event of no return, or in the event of a pilot who has met those responsibilities in the past but who may not be conducting his duties at the time, his peer group, his family, those whom he has loved, and who love him wish to see that the dedication he has spent in his endeavors is repaid with the ultimate respect and condolence.

It is a comfort to those who have respected, admired, loved, and shared the uniform creed of knowing he “met the challenge” to know that he will garner a respect of solemn tribute.  This tribute can only be given by his peers.

The Federal, State, Military, and Police authorities have long recognized a need to send off their brethren in a respectful and proper manner.  As a professional society we feel the need and the obligation to establish a program which honors our fallen.

This program is intended to serve all continental Pilots–active, furloughed, or retired.  The CALALPA Honor Guard transcends union and company politics.  There is no greater form of unity than serving a fallen brother or sister and their family in a time of need.

If you would like to volunteer to become part of the CALALPA Honor Guard or would like to request that your name be added to the list of pilots who request our services, please contact us via email at:  CAL.HONORGUARD@ALPA.ORG
