The Prescott campus’ ALPA ACE Club was established in 2012. The ALPA ACE Club is a student-led organization that features monthly presentations by subject-matter experts arranged by ALPA Education Committee members on various aviation-related topics. Additionally, ACE Club members enjoy exclusive information from ALPA, including ALPA airlines’ pay rates and hiring requirements, networking opportunities with current ALPA pilots, and select Air Line Pilot magazine articles.
