Born from a desire to become a global leader in the advancement of women in aviation through education, promotion, mentorship and empowerment, L.I.F.T. is primarily a private Facebook group of over 6,000 women pilots and student pilots. As we grow our 501(c)3 organization we will grow our presence in other more public forums like this one.

Welcome to L.I.F.T. !

We are excited to expand our presence with this first public blog/webpage!

The Ladies In Flight Training, Inc. non-profit was formed in 2018 by Krista Morisen, a private pilot. She saw a need to support women student pilots specifically and created a private Facebook group to provide a safe and nurturing environment for these women who are just starting on their aviation journey.

Women pilots only represent 7% of the entire pilot population and has only reached this number after staying stagnant at 6% for over 50 years.

As a  US 501 (c) 3 registered organization, L.I.F.T. has grown to over 5,000 members in just a few years and is now offering their own scholarships to give back and support their members.

To help us continue to fund the dreams of aspiring women pilots, please consider making a donation.
