No, we don't fly planes. The "Pilot" in our name refers to the riverboat pilot who steered his craft on a true course. (See the Pilot logo on the left.)
Pilot Club of Jackson County is a volunteer service organization dedicated to "protecting your brain for life" through education about brain-related disorders and disabilities, and funding projects related to brain health and community wellness. Our membership comes from all parts of Jackson County, WV, and we welcome members without regard to race, religion, creed, color, gender, age, national origin, or disability. Our members include those who regularly attend meetings as well as e-members, for whom attendance may not be possible but who wish to participate in our mission.
We are part of the Kentucky-Ohio-West Virginia District of Pilot International. This District was originally organized in 1939 as District 10, the name being changed in 1977-78 to the states' names. There are sixteen clubs in our District, including three in Kentucky, eight in Ohio, and five in West Virginia.
Pilot International consists of twenty districts, with clubs in the United States, Japan, the Bahamas, Canada and Singapore. Pilot International and its charitable arm, Pilot International Foundation, assist those with brain-related disorders through volunteerism, education, fundraising, and research.
