Sponsorship

Elevate Aviation recently celebrated our 6th anniversary! Elevate began with a passion to help women become strong, independent and self-sustainable. Women are vastly underrepresented in the aviation and aerospace sectors and Elevate Aviation was created to close the gender gap. Below is just a small sampling of the statistics we wish to change:

  • Women make up only 6% of private pilots in Canada
  • Fewer than 5% of all airline pilot license holders are female
  • Female mechanics make up under 2% of mechanics worldwide
  • Only 11% of aerospace engineers are women
  • Women hold only 16% of jobs as Air Traffic Controllers in Canada
  • Less than 19% of the Royal Canadian Air Force are women
Our goal is to create a shift in the aviation industry that promotes gender balance. We encourage women to pursue careers in the aviation industry and provide a platform for women to thrive and succeed. By partnering with other industry professionals and organizations, we are creating a disruption in the current climate and seeing amazing results.
 

Unfortunately, Covid-19 has had an all-encompassing negative impact on the aviation and aerospace industry. Since early 2020 the industry has seen mass layoffs, recruiting freezes, and early retirements due to severe worldwide travel restrictions. Adapting to the “new normal”,  our programs have been pivoted to ensure the spirit of our mission is sustained and that prosperity for women can be achieved through aviation.

Some of our program changes include moving to virtual speaking engagements and tours, launching a weekly webinar highlighting aviation, and developing unique online exposure and training courses for women and youth. 

Promote Change

By partnering with Elevate Aviation:
  • Your brand gains visibility as a business that will help create a shift in the aviation industry by promoting gender balance
  • You will benefit from the exposure and good will of helping women thrive and success through aviation
  • You will be identified as an organization that supports diversity and inclusion initiatives in the workplace

Every sponsorship dollar is in support of our programs, helping women to achieve economic security and closing the gender gap in the industry.

"The work these women have done in just a few years is remarkable. The events are always enjoyable to attend, but what they have done with the funds raised at these events has had an immediate impact in the industry. I have been proud to sponsor these events in the past and look forward to continue doing so."

"CATCA is proud to sponsor Elevate Aviation. Their mission not only supports women by offering them an opportunity for economic security, but benefits the industry as a whole by educating all people about aviation careers."

President and CEO, CATCA
