"Protecting the Brain for Life"
The mission of Pilot Club of Dallas is: To serve by furthering Pilot International’s humanitarian efforts through charitable, educational and research programs in communities throughout the world.
Pilot began in 1921 when a small group of dedicated women wanted to make a difference. The name "Pilot" was taken from the riverboat captains on the Mississippi River who steered a “true course ever”. Pilots’ mantra was and is to promote friendship and service as primary goals. As the organization expanded, Pilot Club of Dallas was chartered in 1938. These brilliant local women focused on service and began their quest by purchasing the first refrigerated units at Baylor Hospital for what became Wadley Blood Bank that is now Carter Blood Centers. They founded the Pilot School for Deaf Children that evolved into today’s Callier Center for Communications Disorders. Pilots moved on to found Dallas Pilot Home, a life-skills residence that served developmentally challenged women for 23 years. Pilot International adopted brain-related issues as the international club focus in the early 90's. (www.pilotinternational.org)
Pilot is now open to both men and women. The members of Pilot Club of Dallas are still committed to making a difference in our community by promoting awareness of brain-related disorders and working to educate and improve the lives of those affected. Pilots also support other programs focused on educational and social development of children, teens and families.
