The International Society of Women Airline Pilots is a charitable, non-profit organization of career women airline pilots whose purpose is to: celebrate camaraderie; support informational exchange and social interaction among its members in a healthy environment; provide aviation scholarship opportunities for career-seeking women; and inspire future generations of women aviators via educational outreach.

ISA is the world’s largest single donor of advanced flight scholarships for women, annually awarding at least two aircraft type ratings and thousands of dollars of scholarship monies to qualified women. The type ratings are highly competitive and are a major step in acquiring the job of airline pilot. Most of ISA's type rating winners have gone on to airline pilot careers.  

ISA members are active or retired airline pilots who support active and aspiring pilots with career support and mentoring. ISA hosts an annual conference at various locations around the globe. The organization hopes to create greater visibility, acceptance, and understanding of women airline pilots for the general public.
