In celebration of International Women's Day, LATAM Airlines Brazil will form, for the first time, a class of female co-pilots

In commemoration of the International Women's Day, celebrated in March, the LATAM Airlines Brazil will form, for the first time, a class of female co-pilots. There will be six employees who will undergo the company's training and who will soon work on the A319, A320 and A321 aircraft.

“This move is part of our objective to encourage female participation in the world of aviation, especially inside the flight deck. Currently, the male audience is the one that most seeks the position of commercial pilot and we want to change this concept”, explained the director of operations of Latam Airlines Brazil, Geraldo de Meneses.

The training of future co-pilots will last approximately five months and will include practical training with instructors at all stages, starting with the company's Training Academy, passing through flight simulators and, thus, reaching the routes operated by the airline.

Finally, when they are formed, the co-pilots will operate in domestic routes from Brazil, in addition to regional flights and also to Miami, USA.
