About Silver Stripes

Our Organization

The purpose of Silver Stripes is to continue the close friendships and associations of the members, promote their general welfare, and assist those active pilots who are approaching retirement.

Regular Membership is limited (by our charter with Illinois) to American Airlines pilots who are over age 55, active or retired, but we also welcome pilots under 55 years of age as Associate members. They will become full members at age 55. We also welcome pilots from American Airlines subsidiaries as Associate or Regular Members as specified above. Surviving spouses of Members continue as Auxiliary members.

Associate and Auxiliary members do not pay dues and are not eligible to vote in organization matters.
