The American Independent Cockpit Alliance, Inc. (AICA) was incorporated in June 1993 as a nonprofit Delaware corporation. It is an independent labor union for pilots of American Airlines. The AICA is exempt from income tax as a labor organization under internal revenue code section 501(c)(5) and similar provision of state law. The AICA provides all services normally associated with a labor union except collective bargaining. It's membership is voluntary and dues are assessed at approximately 1% of a member's approximate annual compensation as an American Airlines pilot.
