European Pride in Aviation Network is an organisation with the mission to Build, Support and Unite the LGBTQIA+ Aviation Community around Europe and Beyond.

We represent aviation enthusiasts from around the world – from professional pilots to general aviation, from air traffic controllers to cabin crew, from mechanics to ground staff. As long as you are passionate about aviation, you have found your place!

We are currently working hard to bring more benefits to European and UK members, so stay tuned for updates.

We invite you to join our network, currently you have three options:


The EPAN is about community. Upon discovering us many people feel as if they have found where they belong. We are a home for LGBTQ people with a passion for aviation.



The cost of flight training is one of the most challenging barriers to entry for pilots. From supporting private pilot training, to enhancing education with advanced certificates and ratings, to direct exposure to flight operations at major carriers, NGPA/EPAN scholarships provide a stepping stone for aspiring aviators at a crucial point in their education.



As a non-profit institution, we rely on the generous gifts our members and donors provide that support our global mission of full equality in aviation. Your gift can be used to help the EPAN at large, or it can be directed to specific missions such as the Annual Fund, Advocacy Fund, Mentorship Fund, or the Scholarship Fund.


Events are one of the biggest benefits to EPAN members. They provide members the opportunity to come together, while being their true selves, catching up with old friends and making new ones!

We organise a variety of events around Europe – social get-togethers, participation in Pride events, presentation at trade fairs and aviation expos, and much more!
