About the BWPA
Formed in 1955 the BWPA came into being ten years after World War II Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) women pilots had been thanked for their services to their country, been patted on the head and told to go back to their kitchens. Amongst our membership are student pilots, airline captains, military pilots and flying instructors.
How we can help you
The BWPA is a membership organisation that exists to support women who fly or who are learning to fly and to encourage participation in aviation by women who currently don’t. Today there are many more women in aviation. Members are of all ages, experience and backgrounds but share a common enthusiasm for flying.
The British Women Pilots' Association is a non-profit making association run by volunteers who are enthusiastic and committed to the BWPA. The BWPA exists to promote aviation, particularly to women. There are over three hundred members of the BWPA involved in all areas of aviation.
