All in the Family

Does flying run in your family? Did you grow up flying, with a parent or grandparent at the controls? Perhaps you’ve always known you’d follow in their footsteps? Maybe you looked up to your big sister so much you became a pilot, too. 

We asked ALPA members to share their families with us to help inspire the next generation of pilots. What follows are their stories: Mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, grandparents and cousins—they're all part of the family.

Even if you're the only one in your family that flies, remember that we're all part of the ALPA family. Read and enjoy!.
