The Sisters of the Skies Organization has developed the Sisters of the Skies Mentorship Program. This program is designed to address the large number of ambitious sisters, like yourselves, who would like to join our organization and do not yet possess a commercial pilot’s license, but who have an aspiration of becoming a professional pilot.
We have created this program to show how much the Sisters of the Skies Organization cares about its future members, and how committed we are to creating a more prepared woman of color entering the Aviation industry. As a Sisters of the Skies mentee, you will obtain a female pilot industry contact. With that, we hope that you will develop your career goals, participate in industry focused conversations, and take part in the program’s engaging learning activities.
The program is 6-months and runs from July through December. Participation is meant to develop your professional career objectives and deepen your knowledge about the Aviation industry and its African American history. To participate in the program, you must at least be a student pilot, complete an application form, and be at least 16 years of age (with parental consent below the age of 18). Cost of the program is $15.
You can begin by filling out the Skies Mentorship Program Mentee Form to sign up for the 2019 Program. We ask that you fill out this form by July 31st, 2019. We look forward to matching you with your future mentor, and your inevitable entry into the Aviation Industry.
