About Us

Founded in 1921 in Macon, Georgia, Pilot International is a volunteer  organization of executive, business and professional leaders working together to improve the quality of life in communities throughout the world by serving those with brain-related disorders and disabilities.

The name “Pilot”, chosen for its meaning, “leader and guide,” is symbolized by the riverboat wheel emblem, which represents a steady course. Pilot International’s motto is “True Course Ever.”

Pilot International emphasizes a diversified international membership,with some 22,000 adult and Anchor members worldwide. Members can be found internationally in Argentina, Bahamas, Canada, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Ukraine and the United States.

In 1952, Pilot began to recruit youth volunteers through the establishment of Anchor Club, a volunteer service organization for young people. Today, there are approximately 10,000 members worldwide. Pilot and Anchor clubs work together to improve the quality of life in their communities, sponsoring worthwhile programs that help countless individuals in need.

Pilot International has had ninety-five exciting years of history-making service programs and projects worldwide. And today, Pilot International has approximately 400 clubs and more than 25,000 adult and youth members.  Georgia District has over sixty clubs and over 1,400 members.
