WAI Pioneers

The WAI Pioneer Hall of Fame was established in 1992 to honor women who have made significant contributions as record setters, pioneers, or innovators. Special consideration is given to individuals or groups who have helped other women be successful in aviation or opened doors of opportunity for other women. WAI solicits nominations from members of women throughout the aviation industry for induction to the WAI Pioneer Hall of Fame. 

Congratulations to the 2017 Inductees: The First Class of Women Naval Aviators, Lt. General Stayce Harris, and Elizabeth "Betty" Everts Greene.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2018 Pioneer Hall of Fame. Posthumous nominations are acceptable. Download Application Here. 

Must be submitted no later than August 1, 2017.
