IFALPA's Hall of Fame

A history of the Alpha Omega Club begins with the story of two men of different background and personality who were joined together by IFALPA activities and shared pride in professionalism of airline pilots.

These two men were Captain Lawrence (Lawrie) Arthur and Captain Zdzislaw Ludwig (Louis) Zeyfert - literally the A-Z of the piloting profession. Interested in all aspects of aviation, their paths crossed within IFALPA where they participated in all activities including the "fun" social events of early conferences. During these, time was found to report on the unlikely activities of a phantom "Committee X", which devised such entertainment as demonstrations of the mysteries of the internal combustion engine - see "Zeyfurt's Engine" - sumo wrestling, and "streaking".
