Women Airforce Service Pilots Official Archive

With the wind and the sand in our eyes; And our goal placed up high in the skies; We are the WASPS who serve the Air Corps so true; We're coming, just watch us ZOOM...down upon you! Loes Monk Mackenzie, 43-W-8

The Official WASP Archive collects, organizes, and preserves the history of the Women Airforce Service Pilots. In addition, we actively represent the WASP and share their history to inspire the next generation of female aviators. 

The Woman’s Collection is a premiere destination on the history of women in aviation. We collect and preserve the stories of women in aviation organizations as well as individual female aviators. We tell not only the story of the WASP, but how their legacy lives on today through current organizations and pilots.
