When the Pilot is Mom: Accommodating New Motherhood at 30,000 Feet

NY Times, August 16, 2016

 
Often working airline pilots are afraid to speak out to improve their situation, because of retaliation from their employers.
 
 
 
This article didn't mention that Kathy McCullough and Bonnie Tiburzi Caputo (quoted in this article) are members of ISA+21,
but as retired airline pilots, it is easier to become advocates without fear of repercussions.
Retired or working as an airline pilot, there is a place for you at ISA+21.
Join us!

The woman captain featured in "Come From Away" is our own charter member and co-founder, Beverley Bass.
 
 
We saw the play in Seattle and Washington D.C. and loved it.
 
 
ISA women in DCA for the play
 
We met in Washington D.C. at the famous Ford's Theatre on September 20, 2016!
The theater holds 661, and there were almost 100 of us, including our guests.
 
 
 
 
One of our co-founders and charter members, Beverley Bass is featured in the award-winning play, "Come From Away."
(pictured center, below, in the Seattle "Talk Back.")
 
 
We had so much fun that we plan to follow the play to Toronto and Broadway!

I wanted to invite you to our launch party and fundraiser for the Lois Hole Hospital in Edmonton, Canada. 
This event showcases short stories of 13 women in aviation created by myself and Shaw TV.  It’s going to be a fun evening and for a great cause. It would be wonderful if you could attend and anything you could do to help promote our event would be really appreciated!  I have attached the link to purchase tickets. We have early bird tickets on sale until the end of this month.

Thank you so much!

Why ISA+21
 
ISA is an acronym for International Standard Atmosphere. The appendage of +21, acknowledges the original 21 members.
(Used in aviation, ISA+21 would mean that the atmosphere was 21 degrees above standard.)
 
We are non-profit organization that raises scholarship money to inspire future generations of women aviators via educational outreach. To date we have donated cash and type rating valued at over One Million Dollars. Our conferences and gatherings celebrate camaraderie and provide support in the aviation industry.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Our first convention/conference was in Las Vegas, Nevada in 1978.
Last year we were in Berlin, Germany!
 
2016 will be in Newport Beach, California.
Conference: May 10-12, 2016.
After conference side trip: May13-15, 2016
 
Always fun!

We raise money for our scholarships
at our conferences through member
participation in a silent auction
(member funded) and donations.
 
Last year we gave away two B737NG Type,
1 A320NG Type and a
Multi-engine Instructor rating!
 
Many of our winners have been hired
by major carriers and that is our goal:
more women airline pilots!

Texas Woman's University Donations

 
Don't forget to donate your ISA or personal memorabilia!
 

It is important to know that either organizational or individual “gift agreements” are negotiable

and tailored to your personal satisfaction.

 

The Woman’s Collection has devoted substantial resources to the history of women in aviation. Researchers, historians, educators, filmmakers, documentarians, and scholars find the TWU Woman’s Collection to be a rich and varied source of valuable information and visual resources. I have included suggestions on “What to Donate” to an organization’s collection or to your individual collection. See “We Want Your Story” under "Archives" in the main menu for more information about participating in TWU Libraries Oral History Program.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or Kimberly Johnson.

It is contrary to ISA policy to provide media commentary on accidents, incidents, politicians or
political positions. No member may present an opinion to the media representing ISA without authorization
from the Board of Directors.
 
Regarding requests for commentary on accidents or incidents in the aviation
community, the following language may be used:
 
“Our sympathy goes out to the family and friends of those involved in this terrible tragedy. Although I am an airline pilot, I'm not an accident investigator. It would be irresponsible for any of us to speculate on what has occurred. The NTSB will be investigating and providing updates on the progress of the
investigation.”
