As I reflect on the past year, like so many of you, I feel the tremendous weight of an unthinkable set of challenges. Very traumatic and public displays of racial injustice, against the backdrop of a global pandemic that was disproportionately impacting people of color, forced our nation to look directly into the face of the social systems that create inequity in a way many of us never had before.
We plan for at least 50% of the 5,000 new pilots we train in the next decade to be women or people of color. Through scholarships and financing options to our flight training school, United Aviate Academy, we’re also ensuring the cost of training is no longer a barrier to entry.
