An online version of the 34-question Aviation Gender Attitude Questionnaire (AGAQ) was administered to 113 Federal Aviation Administration-certificated pilots. A statistically significant difference (p < 0.05) in perceptions of female pilots was found between male and female pilots, with male pilots viewing female pilots’ flying proficiency, flight confidence and standards more negatively than did female pilots. These perceptions were not moderated by age, experience, or opportunities to fly with female pilots. Our findings replicated previous findings in South Africa, Australia, Norway, and South America. The paper concludes with a discussion of the implications for female pilots, and training implications for both genders.
