Upcoming Events

There are currently no up-coming events to display.

Events are our Passion.

National Conference

The aim of the national conference is to provide attendees with vital information and resources from various facets of the industry, and more importunately, provide an interactive environment for attendees to connect and network with leaders from within the aviation and aerospace industry.

Hosted across various locations the conference will connect, engage and inspire those attending.

Girls in Aviation Day (GIAD)

GIAD events offer an incredible up-close and real-world experience to school-aged girls between the ages of 8-17 to explore the many amazing aviation and aerospace careers out there. We know, and have seen first-hand, that GIAD creates the spark for passionate and successful pathways to aviation and aerospace careers.


Emerging Leaders Forum (EML)

The EML brings together the next generation of aviation professionals alongside innovative speakers and leaders of today’s industry.  This forum is designed to cultivate innovative ideas in our youth, share career pathway information and provide support networks into the aviation aerospace and space sectors through collaboration and interactive discussion and mentoring opportunities with current leaders in their fields.

It is avenue for debate, innovation and education to help the next generation of aviation and aerospace leaders to connect, engage and be inspired.

The EML forums are hosted across Australia throughout the year, in both regional and city locations.

Become an event sponsor

Our events would not be possible, nor would they be as widely accessible as they currently are, without the generosity of our sponsorship partners. Sponsorship empowers us to continue inspiring, connecting, and engaging girls and women with the aviation and aerospace community. If you would like to discuss opportunities to sponsor tailored programs, initiatives, and events, complete the EOI, and, let's talk!
