Less than 1% of pilots in the U.S. are Black women. Find out what UPS first officer Angel Hughes is doing to fuel the next generation of Black pilots in this inspiring video:
In her words: “UPS is doing a great job at recruiting people of color. One day being a Black female pilot will be the norm.”
The sky’s the limit: Since Angel co-founded the non-profit Sisters of the Skies in 2017, the organization has reached nearly 200 members and donated $500,000 in flight school scholarships to aspiring Black women aviators. And the numbers keep soaring.
