Our Volunteer Pilot Network is the heart of this regional, environment-focused volunteer pilot organization. SouthWings’ Volunteer Pilot Coordinator will support and coordinate the organization’s evolving framework for recruiting new volunteer pilots to serve our partners across the Southeast. SouthWings is currently working towards a new peer-to-peer volunteer outreach structure, modeled on best practices from sister volunteer pilot organizations. Under this new structure, the VP Coordinator will be the primary staff member supporting a recently formed Aviation Advisory Committee and a new Volunteer Pilot Mentorship Program. The VP Coordinator will serve as the staff hub for the volunteer-led committee and mentorship program, as well as all volunteer pilot recruitment activities. In addition to supporting volunteer outreach work, the VP Coordinator will assist in maintaining current membership in the volunteer network. The VP Coordinator will need to work effectively with a wide range of people, with a primary commitment to facilitating the work of volunteer pilots.
The VP Coordinator will be based in the Asheville, NC area and may at times require travel (up to 10% of the time), including attendance at SouthWings’ annual volunteer pilot fly-in event (hosted in various locations throughout the Southeast). Weekend and evening work will be required in order to accommodate volunteers’ schedules. The VP Coordinator will work out of the main office in Asheville, NC.
The VP Coordinator is a full-time position (40 hours/week). The VP Coordinator reports to the Executive Director (ED) and supports program staff positions, as well as the volunteer-led Aviation Advisory Committee and Volunteer Pilot Mentorship Program.
