Mentorship Programs

SOS member with mentee

Overview

Our mentorship program was birthed out of the need for role models and representation-“If YOU can SEE it, YOU can BE it!” To date, we have had approximately 60 mentees join our program and some have since become members. They are paired with an SOS mentor and will participate in the yearly or accelerated program.

Mentorship Programs

Our organization provides mentorship, fellowship, and camaraderie to women of color who have had little or no exposure to professional pilot careers. The foal of our mentorship program is to promote the progression and development of women of color seeking careers flying in the aviation industry.

Prospective mentees must possess at least a student pilot’s certificate, pay our non-refundable application processing fee, be at least 16 years of age with parental consent below the age of 18, fill out our online application, and complete our screening interview process.

Cohort Mentorship Program

The Cohort Program utilizes the Slack App to group mentees with mentors in a virtual platform to achieve support, guidance and best practices for each group based on their training level. In Slack, mentees will be assigned to one of three cohorts: student pilots, private pilots and instrument rated pilots. You must possess at least a student pilot’s certificate, pay our non-refundable application processing fee, be at least 16 years of age with parental consent below the age of 18, fill out our online application, and complete our screening interview process. The acceptance notification will be conducted on a bi-weekly basis, and you will need to have the Slack App in order to participate. Registration applications will be accepted from September 10- December 31.
