Welcome!

Aviation is about flying airplanes...and so much more!
 
The sky is the limit: aerospace engineering, air traffic control, maintenance, FBO management, airline dispatch and safety are all a part of what makes flying possible. The Women in Aviation, NW Arkansas Chapter is dedicated to the goals of providing networking, education, mentoring and scholarship opportunities to individuals in the aviation and aerospace industries. We aim to share our love of aviation with young people and adults and to act as mentors to help them achieve their goals. The chapter is also a good way for people interested in aviation to get together and share stories, tips, and encouragement.
 
We'd love to meet you at the Rogers, AR Airport on Saturday, June 14! There will be lots to see and do at the airport that day in addition to our chapter meeting. See our list of other scheduled meetings and events under the "News and Events" tab.
