The ALPA Mobile Application is designed to provide public information about the work that ALPA does for the aviation profession and its 50,000+ members. The ALPA mobile application also includes an interactive guide to jumpseat policies for over 80 carriers as well as information about the Known Crewmember program. Additionally, for ALPA Members, there is a private area for Safety related information such as the International Directory and the Orange Card. Another members only component of the application contains contact and hotel information as well as other functions specific to each MEC once users login using their ALPA Number and alpa.org password.
New features for ALPA Members in this version include Document, Event and Update functionality for MECs and LECs as well as an area in the Safety portion for FT/DT resources.
NOTE: Newer versions of Android devices have been having issues getting to the extended menu which allows you to access other applications within the ALPA mobile suite. This functionality can be accessed by pressing and holding the “HOME” button on your Android device instead of just tapping that button to return to the home screen.
In this version we squashed a few bugs. We enhanced usability by adding a few features. Push notifications when a MEC or LEC Document, Event, or Update is added. Introduced the ability to have your Membership Card on the device. Added the capability to give your MEC Hotel Committee direct feedback right from the app with the option of including a picture. Export MEC or LEC Documents, Hotel Maps now open your installed navigation app.
