Outreach

With our outreach programs, youth have the opportunity to engage with female pilots in uniform and take discovery flights with hopes of fostering tomorrow’s aerospace professionals. Our programs are aimed at exposing African American female youth to aviation via career discovery events.

Who We Are

About Us

Our organization is comprised of professional black women pilots who represent less than ½ of 1% of the total professional pilot career field. Currently, there are less than 150 black women pilots in the United States holding Airline Transport Pilot, Commercial, Military, and or Certified Flight Instructor Licenses. Our goal is to drastically improve these numbers through mentorship, professional development, STEM and outreach and scholarships.

Our Mission & Vision

To increase our sisterhood through scholarship, mentorship, and outreach. Our vision is to develop pathways and partnerships to increase the number of black women in the professional pilot career field.
