ABC's of Pilot International

Why do we have Pilot ABC's?

Individuals unfamiliar with Pilot International often assume we fly planes. After Pilots explain that we do not fly planes, we are often asked what do we do. We sometimes give our elevator speech which includes our principles, mission, and two focus areas.

With the reinstatement of Compass Clubs and promotion of Pilot, Anchor, and Compass as equals in Pilot International, the ABCs were redefined to be a marketing tool that define what we do as Pilots.

Citing the ABCs is another concise explanation of who we are and what we do.
