In an exclusive interview with the Roswell Daily Record, Pablo Ducau, President of Latin America for Aerospace Security (ALAS), an organization recently officially introduced during the first session in the Mexican Congress related to the UAP phenomenon (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena), reveals its purpose and shares his remarkable personal experience with a UAP while piloting a commercial aircraft.
Last September, during the first session in the Mexican Congress concerning UAPs, ALAS was officially presented, an organization dedicated to providing a secure and objective space for people to freely report encounters with unexplained aerospace phenomena. This initiative aims to address the challenges faced by pilots and witnesses of UAP sightings, who often feel discouraged from sharing their experiences due to fears of repercussions.
Pablo Ducau, with an impressive aviation career spanning 41 years and over 16,000 flight hours, shared his encounter with a UAP that took place on November 23, 2011, during a commercial flight, an event that marked a turning point in his life.
Ducau recounted how, on a clear night with good visibility, he spotted a luminous object in the sky that initially appeared to be a red star but turned out to be much larger. Surprisingly, after inquiring about it, air traffic control had no communication with the object, which heightened his astonishment. The object changed color and stayed close to the aircraft, accompanying it for a while before accelerating and disappearing at astonishing speeds, defying any known conventional technology.
Ducau emphasized the impossibility of a conventional aircraft performing such maneuvers without endangering the lives of passengers and the aircraft itself, raising serious questions about the nature of these UAPs. He also noted that the object had entered the airspace of two countries, Chile and Argentina.
Despite officially reporting the incident, his initial report was disregarded due to the absence of video or photographic evidence. However, over time, Ducau learned that his report had been destroyed during a document declassification process, raising serious doubts about the transparency of those responsible for preserving such records.
These events led Ducau to be part of the formation of ALAS, whose name reflects its purpose: “Latin America for Aerospace Security.” The organization seeks to provide a secure and confidential environment for witnesses of UAP encounters to report their experiences without fear of repercussions. ALAS aims to advocate for the declassification of information related to these phenomena and advocate for a more serious approach from governments and the aerospace community in Latin America.
Pablo Ducau highlighted that in Mexico, the foundations are being laid to declare the UAP phenomenon of national interest, and he believes that other countries will follow suit. As ALAS grows and expands, its goal is to promote open communication and collaboration among pilots and UAP witnesses across Latin America.
The mission of ALAS is clear: to demystify the stigma surrounding UAP witnesses, provide a platform for sharing experiences, and encourage serious and objective research into these aerospace phenomena. As the organization progresses, a deeper understanding of what is happening in our skies and beyond may be revealed.
