The first trip of Captain Erik Dalege, the new President of EMPA - European Maritime Pilots' Association, is in Italy. In recent days, at the Rome offices, he met with the top management of Fedepiloti is Italian.

"Fedepiloti in Italy is a very important organization" - said Captain Dalege - "which has demonstrated its functionality and advantages for its members for many decades. It was important for me to personally meet the president of the organization, Mr. . Luigi Mennella and other members of the organization and talk about their expectations towards the EMPA. It is impressive to see how Fedepiloti is professionally structured and in how many areas it deals with the needs of Italian pilots. From my point of view, Italian pilots can consider themselves lucky to have such a representation, ready and able to face the challenges of the future. "

President Luigi Mennella and director Giacomo Scarpati met with President Dalege on the main issues of piloting in Europe. The meeting was also an opportunity to begin to agree on the modalities of the Empa General Meeting that Fedepiloti said it was "honored and proud" to host in Italy in 2023. "I was very happy with Fedepiloti's decision to organize the general meeting in Rome in 2023" concludes Dalege. "The whole European family of pilots is enthusiastic! One of my goals as president of EMPA is to strengthen the feeling of solidarity among European pilots. A meeting in the Eternal City is ideal for this."

The meeting ended with the delivery to the European representative of the crest of the Italian Ports Pilots Federation.
