Together We Build a Legacy

IAWA has been bringing together accomplished women in all fields of aviation for 30 years. Through Conferences, Forums, Connects and affiliations the organization has fostered professional and personal relationships that last a lifetime. Through scholarships and mentoring, together we leave a legacy. IAWA would not be where it is today without the continued support of our members through annual dues and sponsorship of our conferences and other events.
