MEMBERSHIP HAS ITS PRIVILEGES!
Once we soared with the World's Most Experienced Airline, spanning the world in sleek jets etched in Pan Am Blue. And though Pan American Airways is gone, it is not forgotten by its flight attendants. For more than 50 years, we have kept the memories, friendships and community commitments of our flying days alive as members of World Wings International, Inc., the philanthropic organization of former Pan Am flight attendants.
World Wings keeps us together and is a wonderful and important addition to our lives. As chapter members we donate our time to fundraising for charitable organizations, but it is the longtime friendships and our unique connection that keeps us together. Once a World Winger attends an annual convention, meets old friends and makes new friends, it is easy to understand the bond that still exists after all these years.
World Wingers are still involved in the world they were so privileged to see. Each chapter raises funds for local charities and for CARE which supports projects in aid of women and children around the globe. Since 1966 WWI has raised over $3.5 million for charities.
In the years after Pan Am's demise, its former flight attendants have gone on to other careers as community leaders, teachers, doctors, academics, authors, travel agents, realtors, homemakers, entrepreneurs and executives. Some are still airborne, flying for major airlines such as Delta and United. Both male and female flight attendants are eligible to become World Wings members.
We're a sociable group and our calendars are packed with great events - including luncheons, parties, and special events like our annual conventions held "someplace in the world". Our fundraising events and our conventions are ways we maintain our friendships and enjoy the camaraderie of other women and men who share the unique and rewarding experience of having worked for Pan Am. We have 31 chapters in the U.S., Oslo, Stockholm, London, Paris and Bangkok.
World Wings is a perfect opportunity to celebrate precious friendships that remind us of the "diamonds of experience" we've shared in our lives.
"Pan Am brought us together. World Wings keeps us together."
