United Airlines Says 50% of the 5,000 Pilots They Train Will be Black Women or People of Color
United Airlines announced it will train thousands of new pilots based on race.
United says “diversity is at the forefront” of its pilot program:
"Today, United has one of the most diverse pilot populations of any U.S. carrier with nearly 20% of our pilot group made up of women and people of color. We are working toward raising that number even higher by partnering with diversity-led organizations and continuing to remove gender and racial barriers. And we’re going one step further with plans for 50% of United Aviate Academy students being women and people of color to ensure our students reflect the diversity of the customers and communities we serve."
