German Cockpit Association  -
Vereinigung Cockpit (VC)

Headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany near Frankfurt International Airport, the ‚German Cockpit Association - Vereinigung Cockpit’ (VC) serves as professional association and collective bargaining agent for more than 8300 pilots and flight engineers in Germany. It was founded in 1968 as a professional association, first without any further bargaining functions. That changed in 2000 when the association turned into a fully working trade union.

Vereinigung Cockpit employs several task forces, thereby working on aviation specific topics like fatigue management and flight safety in general.

As a member of the International Federation of Air Line Pilots’ Associations (IFALPA) and European Cockpit Association (ECA) VC is also heavily involved in international union politics, hereby assisting the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) with its long history of aviation experience.
