Women have been involved in aviation and piloting from the very beginning – flying powered aircraft since 1908. Until the 1970’s however, most women were restricted to fly for private operators or in other jobs in the aviation industry. Many women who have been successful in various roles in aviation have helped along and mentored younger women in their careers in aviation.
We have compiled a list of highly recommended websites, articles and female pilot communities – all of these are doing a great job in supporting female aviators and offer motivation, inspiration and a helping hand for all future Women in Aviation!
