Student Organizations

Joining a club as a Central student is a great way to meet people with similar interests and participate in exclusive opportunities.  Central has two aviation-specific organizations which are open to all students on campus.

ALPA ACE Club - CWU

ACE Club

The ALPA ACE Club is a student-led organization sponsored by the Air Line Pilots Association, Intl. We have the goal of promoting a culture of professionalism and safety today for the pilots of tomorrow through ALPA pilot-led presentations, field trips, workshops, and seminars. The ALPA ACE Club at CWU also has the goal of enabling students interested in a career in aviation to network with pilots at various carriers on both a professional and personal level all while not charging members a dime.

Women in Aviation International - CWU Chapter

Women in Aviation

Women in Aviation International (WAI) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the encouragement and advancement of women in all aviation career fields and interests.  Although originally founded upon and still deeply values the advancement of women in the aviation industry, it welcomes both men and women.  The Central Washington University chapter of WAI seeks to allow all aviation students to have opportunities to network with aviation professionals, fellow peers and students.  We accomplish this by attending the National WAI Conference, sponsoring aviation professionals at Central, participating in volunteer activities, and by simply hosting fun events that encourage more students to interact with one another and build on the family atmosphere that we have here at CWU.

For more information, visit the Women in Aviation website.

Aviation Living Learning Community

The Aviation Living Learning Community (LLC) was designed to bridge students' academic interest with their residence hall living experience. Students are able to live together in the same residence hall and develop personal and academic relationships with other students and aviation faculty. Some exciting things the LLC have done include trips to Boeing field to the Museum of Flight, study sessions for upcoming flight tests and stage checks, and many more things.
