See It to Be It

Vision for a Diverse Industry

We in APC believe that there are no educational, societal, gender, racial, or cultural reasons why everyone who wants to become an airline pilot, cannot do so. 

APC wants to break down barriers to entry, so that the world’s most exciting career is available to everyone who has the capability to be a pilot, but perhaps has never believed that it could be possible for them.

Pilot Competencies are Human Competencies

In order to be safe and effective, an airline pilot must possess certain attributes and capabilities (Pilot Competencies). These Pilot Competencies are by no means extraordinary. In fact, everybody possesses key core competencies, learned during their lifetimes through day-to-day interactions within family, school, social, sport and work environments. 

In this infographic we have displayed the Pilot Competencies, and their definitions so that you can understand that they are also human competencies, that we all use everyday of our lives. 

  • Workload Management? Ask any parent. 
  • Problem Solving and Decision Making? Not a day goes by without people exercising this competence. 
  • Situation Awareness - We are constantly assessing our environment and projecting forward so that a good outcome arises…. Fuel in the car, distance to go? Family and colleague’s mood - How will these impact the day? 

And so on… The point is, because pilot competencies are rooted in human competencies, there is no reason why YOU should not aspire to being a competent airline pilot.

Redraw the Balance

We know that Diversity is not just about rebalancing the male female representation in the airline pilot population. However, it is the starkest example, where a tiny percentage of half the human population are today airline pilots. The International Society of Women Airline Pilots publish statistics that show how unbalanced the situation is.

Now watch this powerful video that shows what we are up against in terms of career gender stereotyping.
Incredibly, pigeon-holing of gender career expectations starts between 5 and 7 years of age among schoolchildren.
