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.
