Welcome to Women in Aviation

 The Netherlands Chapter

Women in Aviation - The Netherlands Chapter (WAI-NL) is a nonprofit organization that encourages the advancement of women in all aviation career fields and interests.


Our mission

Our mission is to empower women in the Netherlands and in Europe to achieve unimagined possibilities and transformations through technology, leadership and economic prosperity in the industry.


We provide year-round networking, and mentoring possibilities, as well as resources, to assist women in aviation and to encourage young women to consider aviation as a career through our collective experience as educators and industry professionals. 

WAI-NL also offers educational outreach programs to educators, aviation industry members and young people nationally and internationally.


WAI-NL promotes public understanding of the accomplishments, contributions and recognition of women in the industry.
