Whirly-Girls at Women in Aviation (WAI)
Women in Aviation International (WAI) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the encouragement and advancement of women in all aviation and aerospace career fields and interests. Women from a wide range of professions are members: pilots, engineers, flight attendants, astronauts, maintenance technicians, students, journalists, and more.
Every spring, WAI holds a conference to connect, engage, and inspire their members. The conference includes networking opportunities, training sessions, keynote speeches, and scholarship presentations which, in 2022, included over $473,000 in scholarships.
Another key event is the Girls in Aviation Day, when girls between the ages of 8 and 17 gather to learn about aviation and have fun.
The Whirly-Girls host a booth in the WAI expo hall and hold a meeting, or "hovering," where members and friends gather to share experiences and explore networking opportunities. Whirly-Girls also participate in the Girls in Aviation Day events to help inspire the next generation of pilots.
Come join us at WAI and celebrate the wide range of women who love all aspects of aviation!
