At Southwest Airlines, we love to inspire future generations to succeed, and one of the many ways we do that is through our Adopt-A-Pilot program. Since 1997, our Pilots have dedicated their own time to help students define, articulate, and plan for future success; all while enjoying fun-filled lessons! But for these father-son duos, this program has become more than fun—it’s become a family legacy.

Seeing our Employees come together and donate their time to make an effort such as this happen, make me so proud to work for Southwest Airlines!
My family’s love of Disney started from a young age. One of our long-running family daydreams (always talked about, but never expected) has been to buy Annual Passes to Disney. Sadly, it just never made sense as we live in New Mexico and wouldn’t be able to put it to good use. Last year, however, something rather magical happened when I earned Southwest’s Companion Pass and we were able to make that dream a reality!
