We're heading to central Florida for our 28th annual International Women in Aviation Conference! Join us at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort for all the energy, excitement, and networking the WAI conference is best known for—plus a little Disney magic!

You won't want to miss the keynote speakers, educational sessions, exhibit hall, scholarship awards, and good times with individuals from all areas of aviation. There's no better place to be inspired, share your enthusiasm, and connect with others who share your passion for the aviation industry.
