OUR CONFERENCES ARE SO MUCH FUN!

More information under conferences (after login) in the main menu above.
ISA+21 was founded in 1978 when twenty-one women airline pilots came together for their first conference.
Our purpose is to provide camaraderie and support for women airline pilots.
We raise scholarship money and have donated over $1 MILLION for women aspiring to be airline pilots.
40TH ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATIVE BOOK
ISA+21 is creating a book commemorating our 40th Anniversary in 2018.
We are asking anyone who has ever been an ISA+21 member to write their favorite flying story from 1-6 pages, with a photo of their choice and a short biography.
Hopefully you have a favorite flight or experience to share that non-ISA members will love too!
All active or inactive members can contribute.
We would like your story (stories!) by the end of January... so please sit down for an hour or so and write! Or contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you write it.
All profits go to ISA scholarship.
MENTORING SURVEY RESULTS
Remember that survey some of you answered on mentors? Here is Paul Cline's Dissertation, including the survey results.
SUCCESSFUL WOMEN IN AVIATION: THE EFFECT OF MENTORING
UPS 747 pilots, Captain Shannon Jipsen and First Officer Michelle Booth.
We all know better than to fly tired. But long haul flights and red eye flying are realities. Until airlines get better at managing schedules and realize the importance of solving this issue, pilots will continue to monitor their own performance and find methods that work for them to manage fatigue. This isn't just a problem in the United States, but internationally as well. Hopefully our unions will step up to the plate and help us solve the problems inherent with flying fatigued.

Disney's Coronado Springs Resort
Lake Buena Vista, Florida
March 2-4, 2017
We're heading to central Florida for our 28th annual International Women in Aviation Conference! Join us at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort for all the energy, excitement, and networking the WAI conference is best known for—plus a little Disney magic!
You won't want to miss the keynote speakers, educational sessions, exhibit hall, scholarship awards, and good times with individuals from all areas of aviation. There's no better place to be inspired, share your enthusiasm, and connect with others who share your passion for the aviation industry.
Elevate Aviation was started because we have a passion to help women become strong, independent and self sustainable.
Mission: Women are vastly under-represented in the aviation and aerospace sectors and Elevate Aviation was created to increase gender equality. We want to amplify women’s voices that are already in this field, use gender responsive advertising to attract women to aviation, and provide a platform for women to thrive and succeed.
Women make up only 6% of private pilots in Canada and fewer than 5% of all airline transport pilot license holders are female.
Female mechanics make up under 2% of mechanics worldwide and women hold only 16% of jobs as Air Traffic Controllers in Canada.
We hope that by showing what a terrific career aviation really is, we can encourage more women to enter this male dominated industry,
break down barriers and change the statistics.

Emily Howell Warner
Emily was member #20 with ISA+21!
Emily Howell Warner was the first permanent female pilot for a scheduled US passenger airline, the first female airplane captain, and in 1986 commanded an all-female flight crew in the US. She was also the first female member of the Airline Pilots Association. After high school Warner decided she wanted to become an airplane stewardess, but was too young to apply for a job and had never been on a plane. After taking her first plane ride at 17, Warner knew she wanted to fly and immediately signed up for pilot lessons. After a year, she had her private pilot license and after another year was a certified flight instructor. Starting in 1968, Warner began applying to pilot a commercial passenger plane. However, it was not until 1973 that Frontier Airlines agreed to hire its first female passenger pilot. Warner then went on to captain a Boeing 737 for the United Parcel Service and in 1974 became the first female member of the Air Line Pilots Association.
