A Toronto-based A320 captain has been elected chair of the Air Canada Pilots Association. Matt Hogan has been at Air Canada for more than 10 years after a period flying air ambulances. He will chair meetings of the Master Elected Council and be the lead negotiator with the airline on issues that arise. He will serve until March 31, 2019. He replaces former chair Kevin Vaillant who resigned last December.
“I got involved with ACPA because I believe the organization helps us do our jobs better,” said Hogan. “I thank the MEC for the confidence they have shown in me, and I look forward to working with my fellow elected representatives, our members, and Air Canada to advance the pilot profession and safety of the flying public at home and abroad.” Hogan has served in various senior roles at ACPA in recent years.
