The Museum of Flight is committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive aviation and aerospace industry. Currently, only 7% of all US FAA pilots are women and our annual Women Fly Conference helps to change this statistic. We are devoted to enriching the future of aviation and aerospace by welcoming all young women regardless of their race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, gender expression (queer, femme, or gender non-binary), disability, sexual orientation, political affiliation, veteran status or religious beliefs.
In order to engage these audiences, our annual Women Fly features hands-on activities, mentorship opportunities, and a resource fair with local, regional and national aviation and aerospace organizations. Participants learn through hands-on activities how to find their voices in STEM and how to prepare for airport careers beyond piloting.
