Abstract
Data collected since females first started aircrew training in Canada in 1979 is reviewed. Females are less successful than males in selective competition for training, but once into the training scheme there is no significant sex difference in achieving WINGS standard. Although numbers are still relatively small, female aircrew are now participating equally with their male peers in all aspects of military flying including tactical fighter operations.
