Annual Women's Forum

Meet and speak with women in aviation.

Moorabbin Flying Services in conjunction with the Australian Women Pilot’s Association is dedicated to supporting a higher representation of women in the aviation industry.

This event is intended mainly for teenage girls in middle-late secondary school (although it is open to all ages), who are looking at a career in aviation. If you have a keen interest in learning more about a career as a pilot, cabin crew member, air traffic controller or aviation fire fighter we would like to welcome you to our inaugural “Women's Forum”.

This event will provide you with an opportunity to speak with women working in a variety of fields, as well as offering you the chance to experience directly what it’s like to work in the industry.

The forum is held at the MFS Ground Theory Centre, 55 Grange Rd in Cheltenham, Victoria.

Opportunities such as these are invaluable and I am looking forward to your next event with great anticipation. Attached you will find my feedback form and details, I hope you will find them useful. Thankyou very much!"  Elizabeth Sprague

"Just thought I'd let you know how the forum went! It was so awesome!! They started off with the pilots, then air traffic controllers, the mechanics and then two girls from Boeing. Once they did all the talking we got to go and chat one on one to a few of them and luckily I got some contacts from on elf the helicopter pilots who offered a week of work experience and the ladies from Boeing who also said we might be able to arrange a bit of a work experience there...."
