Ways to Get Involved
Planting the seed at an early age is key to implementing change. Black youth will have access to see themselves excel in the industry and be able to learn from current professionals in the industry. Programs are created to allow students to familiarize themselves with the roles and complexities within the Aviation industry. Activities include, mentorship, senior leadership panels, pilot lunch panel, ‘Amazing Race’ in flight service (IFS) activity, in person and virtual tours. Programming is geared towards youth ages 15-18. If you would like to submit a request please go to ‘View More’
Donate to a future Pilot or AME Today! We built packages that any aspiring pilot or AME would dream of having as they begin their careers. The items in the packages are normally not covered by flight schools or post secondary institutions. Receiving these resources would allow the students to focus on their studies. These packages would be awarded to Black Canadian students that have identified they are ready to take the next step in their aviation career and identified the need for support. Our packages include, but not limited to: Inspection mirrors, subscription to Foreflight, noise cancelling gear, safety boots, log books, tool case, flight calculators, and more!
We have programming tailored to pilots and AMEs regardless of their progress. Providing immediate access to on-going professional experience means pilots can reduce cycle repetition and AMEs can receive support through to their first job. We provide the opportunity to build a more solid foundation than most pilots and AMEs have today. Empowering the next generation to develop further & embody professional values.
