Being a member of Women in Aviation International (WAI) and the First in Flight Chapter gives you access to scholarships, conferences, events, networking opportunities, educational sessions, the Women in Aviation publications, and much more! WAI offers around 100 different scholarships on an annual basis and the First in Flight Chapter has additional local scholarships available. To be an active member, you must be up to date on your dues with both Women in Aviation International and the First in Flight Chapter.

Who can join the First In Flight Chapter?

Membership is open to everyone! If you are passionate or curious about aviation, you are encouraged to become a First in Flight member! We welcome all people regardless of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. We would love to have you join our team!

How much does First In Flight Membership cost?

We understand that there are many organizations that people are a part of and we try to be conscious of the financial constraint this can have on members. As such, we have decided to keep our annual chapter dues low at $10. The local chapter dues help pay our annual filing fees and keep our website active. We focus more on fundraising through our events which provide opportunities for our members to interact and give back to the community. Our fundraising pays any expenses that membership dues do not cover as well as funding the scholarships we offer as a local chapter. Annual membership dues will be due in January of each year. Please remember that you must be a member of Women In Aviation International as well to be an active member of the First In Flight Chapter. Find out more about the WAI Membership on the international organization’s website.
