Professional Pilot Leadership Initiative

Professional Pilot Leadership Initiative

The Professional Pilot Leadership Initiative (PPLI) aims to accelerate the advancement of women in all pilot professions, facilitate mentoring, and enhance our leadership role in the aviation community. The program provides highly motivated 99s with tools to develop their careers and leadership abilities. Through guided activities and formal mentoring partnerships, it strengthens and expands the network of women pilots.

This highly-structured, formal mentoring program is unique.  The mentor and mentee will communicate on a weekly basis to discuss the mentoring prompts and guided activities.  Participants must commit to meeting the program expectations for the entire duration of the 18-24 month program.

How to apply:

If you are a 99s member with at least a commercial license pursuing a professional pilot career or if you are an established professional who wants to take your career to the next level, this program is designed for you.  Please read the Fact Sheet for a listing of the program requirements.
