Preserving the past, promoting the present, protecting the future.
Women Military Aviators, Inc. is a non-profit corporation formed in 1978 to promote and preserve for historical, educational, and literary purposes the role of women pilots, navigators, and aircrew in the service of their country during times of war and peace. Today, we number over 500 members living and stationed around the world. Read about our history here!
With such a small percentage of the military aviation world being female, it is especially important to get to know, network with, and mentor other women military aviators. WMA members receive regular electronic newsletters and access to an annual membership roster. Members gather annually at the Women in Aviation conference, at local luncheons, informal networking meetings, and at the Biennial Convention.
Regular membership includes the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), women graduates of military pilot and navigator training programs, and women graduates of aircrew training programs as specified by each branch of the military services.
Associate members include those interested in or affiliated with military women aircrew members and/or the WASP.
To further our charter of promoting and preserving women's roles in military aviation, WMA annually awards a $2500 scholarship to a woman pursuing an aviation degree or license.

WMA is always looking for support. We are completely volunteer run, and it is through offering your time and talents that we are able to continue to promote and preserve the historical, educational, literary contributions and the role of women pilots, navigators, and aircrew in the service of our country during times of war and peace.
