In an effort to better connect, mentor and guide our members, Whirly-Girls and industry professionals are coming together to form the rejuvenated Whirly-Girls Ambassador Program.

A Whirly-Girls Ambassador will represent a region of the world and be a point of contact for Whirly-Girls in the area to gather together, find resources, support or networking. She may set up local aviation events, and help keep the local community connected to the organization as a whole.

Some of the biggest perks of this amazing group of women include networking, collaborating and career advices from fellow members. We want to make that process more accessible.

The Ambassador Program is currently being formulated and will debut at HAI HELI-EXPO in Dallas in March 2017. All questions and inquiries can be directed to the VP of Membership.

One of the great benefits of the Whirly-Girls is the knowledge and camaraderie provided by our members! If you would like to learn more about a specific area of the helicopter industry, our members can help. Contact our VP of Membership, and she can help you get in contact with the right person.

Whirly-Girls are all over the world. Would you like to know who lives in your area? Let us know, and we’ll help you get in contact with local women who fly helicopters. Contact the Webmaster.

Would you like to host a gathering in your region? Contact the Webmaster, and she can provide a contact list and suggestions for holding a meeting, or “hovering,” in your area.

And don’t forget to take advantage of networking opportunities provided by the industry. HAI HELI-EXPO has a wide range of networking opportunities as well as a job fair. And HeliSuccess is another training and networking event that provides invaluable information about the specifics of the opportunities in the helicopter industry.
