In 2010 the AFAP Women’s Network was launched with the aim of providing a forum to identify and pursue industrial and professional issues relevant to our female pilot members. Our Network events provide an excellent opportunity for members to learn about inspiring women in our profession and to network with other female pilots from all corners of aviation.

Planning is underway for AFAP Women’s Network events in 2021. Further details will be provided here.
