Organization Overview

Established in 2017 Professional Asian Pilots Association (PAPA) was created in April 2017 by a passionate group of airline pilots. What started as a singular group chat between a group of friends gradually evolved into a full-fledged organization, connecting and empowering individuals who share the same vision to overcome Asian underrepresentation in the aviation industry.

Organization Mission Statement

Professional Asian Pilots Association is dedicated to bringing awareness and support to all members of the Asian community in all fields of aviation. We hope to inspire current and prospective professionals towards a fulfilling career in aviation.

Scholarship Details
The 2023 Fall Scholarship Window closed on October 2, 2023. Stay tuned for the opening of the next application window in 2024! Pursuing a career in aviation can be a long and costly pursuit. At PAPA, we strive to ensure that no qualified individual who aspires to become an aviation professional has to give up on their dream, solely because of financial reasons. In 2021, we awarded over $500,000 in scholarships to PAPA members, and over $550,000 in 2022. We usually open most scholarships in conjunction with the celebration of the Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage month. Anyone can apply as long as they are a PAPA member and meet the criteria outlined by the sponsoring partner. Most scholarships will be paid directly towards the recipient’s institution.
