Opening the Doors of Aviation
First Officer Camila Turrieta is committed to helping others overcome bigotry, financial barriers, and other obstacles to achieve their own dreams of flying. She’s working to ensure all airline pilots feel respected. And she’s helping to make systemic changes to enable future generations of airline pilots from all walks of life and backgrounds— regardless of race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation— to feel that the piloting profession is accessible to them.
The Air Line Pilots Association is calling on America’s lawmakers to protect wages and working conditions for American workers while enhancing safety for the flying public: Help level the playing field and keep our skies safe – support Fair and Open Skies.
Since the mid-1990s, the U.S. airline industry has experienced a remarkable transformation in its safety standards and expectations — so much so that no commercial airline in this country has had a fatal crash in the last 12 years.
