WOMEN IN AVIATION INTERNATIONAL SAN DIEGO CHAPTER
Congratulations to Catherine Durand for being the winner of the 2018 WAI San Diego Chapter Scholarship!
With this scholarship, Catherine will be able to attend the upcoming 2019 International Women In Aviation Conference.
Always ready for the next new and exciting adventure, she's currently on active duty in the U.S. Coast Guard and flies the MH-60T.
She can't wait to take full advantage of this incredible opportunity to meet other women in the industry and to also learn about the many different career paths available to her.
Surrounded by displays of the rich history of aviation, WAI San Diego chapter held our End-of-the-Year event on December 13 at the Gillespie Field Annex of the San Diego Air & Space Museum.
Our 2019 Board of Directors was announced. Congratulations to President Jill Meyers, Vice President Christina Munro,
