What airline's have either female pilots or first officers? I mean there has to be atleast 20 or 30 somewhere in the world. Which airlines have the most? Are there any airlines that have all female pilots? I mean it seems that 99.1% of the women in the airline industry are flight attendants, and 50.% of the males are pilots, and the other 50% are ramp agents. Granted, a few are too flight attendants like the women, but most are not.

While the ratio of women to men is very low, it's not that uncommon anymore to see female pilots. Not sure if Skyservice has female pilots, but I'm sure they do. Air Canada certainly does, Jetsgo has one for now, Canada 3000 and Royal did, Air Alliance has a few, so does Air Ontario, I'm sure they all do!

Only one female captain - On United Express from LAX-SFO. Great flight!
I think there need to be more females captians and FO's, Most people are under the percption that all pilots are male. At my flight school, there are two female CFI's, very very talented too!

Well, what do you know. Another absurd thread on Airliners.net. I have been an airline pilot for 25 years, and have not worked at any airline that did NOT have female pilots. And this means both Captains and First Officers. Those of who who claim to fly a lot and have never seen a female pilot are either not paying attention, don't fly "a lot", or live in some third world country. I'm also married to a pilot, who in addition to having been both a First Officer and a Captain at the airline level, is rated in gliders and seaplanes, who also has an Airframe and Powerplant Mechanics certificate, who also was an air safety investigator with the NTSB, and who is only 32 years old. Proof that gender means nothing if you have the desire and the drive to succeed.

I have flown with a couple:
1. Both my private and instrument rating checkrides were with a female examiner.
2. I flew twice in GA aircraft with another female pilot.
3. I flew on a Mesa CRJ that had a female captain.
4. I see them all the time at airports.
