Mission Statement

PinkTails Aviation Academy provides women a safe, supportive learning environment to build the foundational skills necessary to soar in the aviation industry.

Description

In 1993 she was told "Girls don’t fly!" 25 years later, only 5.6% of licensed airplane pilots are women 54% of female student pilots don’t complete training Our face is lost in the aviation industry!

While other traditionally male-dominated disciplines are becoming gender integrated, aviation is not. Due to the aging out of pilots and the growth of aviation, Boeing predicts there is a demand for 790,000 new pilots worldwide over the next 20 years. The pilot shortage is here, the need is real, and the solution lies in the 50% of the untapped, female workforce.

With the growth in aviation, opportunities exist for women if the barriers can be removed. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the Academy puts financial focus on the educational environment. The goal is to charge 50% less than the average $12,000 cost. Training by female flight instructors will reduce the self-doubt, anxiety, and intimidation barriers common in other flight education environments. The multi-sensory curriculum will creatively teach full-time students the required FAA aeronautical knowledge, so they earn a private pilot certificate in 12-14 weeks.


On the national level, women are demanding a more female-friendly flight training environment and PinkTails Aviation Academy is answering the call. It will build relationships with established associations like LIFT, WAI, and the Ninety-Nines that focus on supporting women in their aviation endeavors. It will be where women soar!
