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.


Ladies In Flight Training, Inc. was started 2013 as a private Facebook group supporting women pilots in training to receive their initial pilot certification up through advanced ratings. Group mentoring and coaching by other women pilots and flight instructors have created a nurturing and successful group that is now over 5,000 member.

Founded by Krista Morisen, a private pilot and airline dispatcher, she saw the need to encourage and support women seeking join the aviation community as a pilot.

Krista had already been sponsoring her own scholarship, Wings Over 35 since 2013; aimed at helping people over the age of 35 with flight training it is offered through another fantastic group, Women in Aviation, Inc.

Krista quickly began her pursuit of non-profit status so she and her team of dedicated volunteers could provide additional scholarship opportunities directly through L.I.F.T.

 L.I.F.T was awarded their 501(c)3 status as a publically supported non-profit in July of 2018.

Based in Indiana, their EIN is 83-1288265.
