Committed to Excellence
Plot International was founded and chartered in 1921 as an international service organization. The river boat pilots of the early 1900′s are the inspiration for the name. These pilots were admired for their ability to steer a “true course” through challenging conditions and obstacles.
Today, Pilot International has approximately 400 clubs and more than 25,000 adult and youth members.
Pilot International has had ninety exciting years of history-making service programs and projects.
Florida District Theme for 2012 – 2013
Bridge the Gap
The Florida District is home to 32 Pilot clubs.
Our rich heritage of Pilot Friendship and Service began in 1928 when the Pilot Club of Pensacola, Florida was chartered. We have grown from the Gulf shores of the Florida Panhandle to the Atlantic shores from Jacksonville to Miami, which was charterd in 1934.
In 1962, the Pilot Scholarship House Foundation, unique to Florida, was chartered. This Foundation answered the need for a Statewide project that all Florida Pilots support.
Scholarship houses at Florida State University in Tallahassee, the University of Florida in Gainesville, and the Florida Gulf Coast University in Ft Meyers are available to women with high academic achievement, motivation, and financial need. These homes partner with the Southern Scholarship Foundation in overseeing the home.
Pilots sponsor Anchor Clubs in elementary, middle and high schools throughout the District. Anchor members volunteer hours to improve their communities while learning leadership skills that will last a lifetime.
