In partnership with the British Women Pilots Association, easyJet and L3 CTS, the Amy Johnson Flying Initiative forms part of a longer-term strategy by the airline to encourage women into all ranks and positions as professional pilots, by widening the pipeline of women who enter easyJet's pilot community.
In October 2015, L3 was selected as the launch partner to deliver the easyJet Amy Johnson Flying Initiative with the aim of doubling the number of female new entrant pilots to 12% over two years through the Generation easyJet Pilot Training Program.
Remarkably, this ambition was exceeded just 14 months from launch, thanks to an incredibly successful recruitment drive through the Amy Johnson Flying initiative.
At L3 Airline Academy, we're hugely encouraged and delighted with such a significant increased level of interest, but we're determined to see that number continue to rise.
As part of the initiative and in partnership with the British Women Pilots' Association, easyJet have provided limited training loan underwriting opportunities for the most outstanding female applicants to the L3 Generation easyJet Pilot Training Program to have a training loan underwritten by our Airline Partner.
"It's an honor to be selected for the Amy Johnson award and to have my potential recognized. It's also a privilege to be part of this drive to encourage women to join the aviation industry, and I hope to inspire more women to consider a career as a pilot."
