Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer with Chicago’s Leading Edge Chapter of Women in Aviation, International

Since the creation of our Chapter in 2009, our volunteers have been our heart and soul.  Volunteers from all over the Chicago area have helped to make us the most recognized organization for women in the aviation industry in our community.

Our chapter has many opportunities for members to reach out and give back to future generations, including:

  • Fundraising event each spring to raise money for the scholarships we offer annually
  • Outreach event each September entitled the Sky’s the Limit Interactive Camp for Girls
  • Membership drives in which we attend air shows and career fairs to get the word out about our great organization

All aviation interests, skills and experience are welcome to share in our passion for encouraging and educating future female’s in the industry!
