Our Education outreach is one of the most important aspects of our mission to connect, inspire and engage with the community to promote without exception all careers in the aviation and aerospace industries.
Our education resources, events and programmes are aimed at those wanting to join, learn about or promote the different careers in aviation and aerospace. In addition to those who are looking to progress or change their current roles within the industry.
The outreach programme has no limit to age. Our different and ever-growing amount of resources start from aviation detailed colouring pages to our soon to be released careers guides.
This page is a tool to facilitate the connection between industry, members, community and educators to provide education of aviation careers. Keep reading below to see how you can get involved as an educator or industry representative.
Girls in Aviation Day - GIAD
GIAD events are a global event hosted by WAI chapters usually in September each year. We assist in hosting multiple events across Australia,.Making this our largest educational event. The event is aimed towards female students aged between 8-17 years old and, has a purpose to show them all the possibilities that are there - through an interactive and close up experience to all things aviation! The one-day events are hosted across a wide range of locations and vary from year to year. In 2019 WAI held the fifth international Girls in Aviation Day. This event was a huge success with 119 individual events across the globe, which reached approximately 20,000 attendees. WAI Australia continues to work with schools and industry to host as many Girls in Aviation Day experience as possible.
