Getting Started

Our team works with Southwest Airlines pilots to create customized financial and retirement plans so you can make a smooth transition from airline pilot to retirement or another career. We’ll begin with our financial planning process, which allows us to understand what makes you happy and what it will cost. With a better understanding of your goals, we are able to determine the income and assets necessary to achieve them. To get started, fill out our Optimized Portfolio questionnaire which will help us assess your portfolio construction.

Webinars for Active and Retired Pilots

If you are an active or retired airline pilot, you’re facing important decisions that may impact your financial future during a turbulent time in the airline industry. There are several key planning tools and sources of income that can impact your financial future.

We hosted two webinars on both PRAP and planning strategies that can help you and your financial future.
