International Society of Women Airline Pilots (ISA+21) Collection

The International Society of Women Airline Pilots (ISA+21), formally called the International Social Affiliation of Women Airline Pilots, was established by women commercial airline pilots in 1978. Although mainly a social organization, ISA+21 also conducts the following public service projects: an Information Bank -- a network of women helping other women in their career goals; publication of a booklet entitled, 'So You Want to be an Airline Pilot' which serves as a guide for both men and women who want to become pilots; and provides scholarships to individuals who want to become airline pilots. To be a member, a woman must be employed as a pilot crew member (Captain, First Officer, or Second Officer) for a major airline operation under Part 121 which operates at least one aircraft with a gross weight of 90,000 pounds or more.
