SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: 133 female airline pilots, members of the International Society of Women Airline Pilots from around the world at Sydney Airport on May 8, 2019. The organization, 615 members strong, gathered in Sydney for their annual conference, this year hosted by Qantas. The International Society of Women Airline Pilots (ISA+21) was formed in 1978 as a social organization to inspire, educate, and support women whose career goal is to be an airline pilot. ISA offers scholarships to promote the advancement of women in the world’s airline flight decks. There are only 2405 female captains, 1.45% worldwide. (Photo by James D.

“Airplane design, pilot training, and federal regulations are what drive safety; not gender, size, or physical strength. There should not be any flight control system on a modern airplane that any person who is qualified cannot overcome and fly.”

Captain Tara Cook, Chairwoman ISA+21, www.iswap.com

CFR 25.253 (U.S. Code of Federal Regulations) High-speed characteristics: …it must be shown that the airplane can be recovered to a normal attitude and its speed reduced to VMO/MMO, without exceptional piloting strength or skill. Read the full code here.

The International Society of Women Airline Pilots has 615 members representing 25 countries and 90 airlines. 

Women represent only 8950 of the 180,000 airline pilots worldwide, a mere 5.01%. Our goal is to increase those numbers through scholarships, education, and mentoring. Since its inception in 1978, ISA has given away over $1.4 million in ratings and cash awards to women whose career goal is to become an airline pilot.
