41st Annual ISA Conference, Sydney

You're Invited! 

May 7-8, 2019 

Our annual ISA conference is in Sydney in May. It will be a wonderful opportunity for our Australian women airline pilots to meet and spend time together with other women airline pilots from around the globe. Qantas has generously agreed to sponsor us this year, and will host us at their Sydney campus. 

Registered to attend so far:

120 women airline pilots
35 guests of pilots
32 airlines from around the globe are represented
43 women from Australian carriers

CHECK-IN TUESDAY 7 MAY, 1000-1600 
(Pre registration online required) 

The ISA Conference registration check-in will be on the mezzanine outside the LOFT 1 meeting room, on Level 3 of The Four Seasons Sydney Hotel 199 George St, The Rocks. Pick up your conference ‘Welcome Bag’ and name tag, drop off your silent auction items, and meet up with ISA delegates for coffee and chat.

TUESDAY 7 MAY, 1830-2200 

Hosted by Qantas in The Street at Qantas Head Office Mascot, as you arrive head up the red carpet to the ‘Engine’ for photos. The festivities will begin with a Welcome to Country ceremony and a few speeches. The very talented Qantas Pathfinders’ Charity Review cast and crew will perform for us. Throughout the evening, canapes and drinks will be served with plenty of time for everyone to mingle with our international members and guests. The silent auction will also be happening all around, so take the opportunity to bid online for the fabulous prizes. 

The fundraising proceeds go directly to the very successful ISA scholarship program, which enables the future success of women airline pilots. So far ISA has provided over US$1.4M in scholarship assistance and they would like to promote and encourage aspiring Australian women pilots to participate in their scholarship program. ISA holds a silent auction with items donated both by members and sponsors and tend to be very popular with those wanting to secure a memory of significance from the conference. This year bidding in the silent auction will be on-line and in $USD! An email with details will be sent out before the conference. 

Dress Code: 
Evening cocktail wear 


Qantas CEO Alan Joyce will speak, as well as Captain Deborah Lawrie, long-time AU ISA member 

WEDNESDAY 8 MAY, 1830-2300 

The raffle will be held during the dinner cruise on Wednesday. Tickets will be sold in both $AUD and $USD for our international guests. 


On Monday 6th the pre-conference activities include the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb and dinner at Mr Wong’s. 


Please check the ISA website for the post conference activities. There is still some availability at the Featherdale Tour and River Cruise on Thursday 9th, the Blue Mountains tour on 10th and the HARS Museum tour on Sunday 12th.

Enjoy the Journey!
