About Women in Aviation International Australian Chapter

WAI Australia is a chapter of the internationally recognized organization, Women in Aviation International (WAI).

The Australian Chapter was established in 2015 to provide a national platform that represents all facets of the aviation and aerospace industry and to engage and inspire the next generation of aerospace leaders. WAI is dedicated to the encouragement and advancement of women in all aviation and aerospace career fields and interests.

Our diverse membership includes aerospace engineers, astronauts, fixed and rotary pilots, maintenance technicians, air traffic controllers, business owners, educators, journalists, flight attendants, high school and university students, air show performers, airport and airline managers and policy makers.

We provide year-round resources to assist women in aviation and to encourage young women to consider aviation and aerospace as a career. WAI also offers educational outreach programs to educators, aviation industry members, and young people nationally and internationally. Our initiatives include annual Girls in Aviation Day programs for girls ages 8 to 17, Mentoring Program, Scholarship Program and the current development of our Airborne Outreach and Indigenous Programs.
