Women in Aviation Worldwide Week

Women Of Aviation Worldwide Week took place this year from March 7-13. It is a global outreach initiative that takes place annually. March 8th is the anniversary date of the world’s first female pilot to recieve a licence, issued in 1910. International Women’s Day is also celebrated on March 8 every year since 1914.

In 2017, the event will take place from March 6-12. Mark your calendars and check the Women in Aviation Worldwide Week website for information on local activities. Tip: The flying events that are offered at some locations book up fast, so be sure to book early with participating organizations in 2017!  

We invite anyone who wishes to foster gender balance in aviation to plan activities during the week to honour women’s existing contributions to aviation as well as to engage and introduce girls and women to the opportunities that aviation offers.

To fulfill the vision of the pioneers who stood up to open the doors of aviation for all women, we extend a warm welcome to girls of all ages in aviation facilities across the globe.

United across borders, we create a warm, welcoming, and hard-to-miss and hard-to-resist message aimed at the female population at large. Each year, the week has a theme that highlights an historical female achievement in aviation.

Activities such as flying events, factory, and school open door events, museum special programs, and much more are organized to showcase today’s women of aviation as well as extend a warm welcome to female newcomers.
