Abstract: Women currently play a crucial role in civil aviation, however, women occupy a weak structural position largely confined to lower (technically at least) skilled jobs. As a consequence, it is anticipated that women experience high levels of workplace insecurity. Drawing on data from a large questionnaire survey of European aviation workers, the paper documents widespread perceptions of income insecurity, employment insecurity and work insecurity. The paper explains these results along with the counterintuitive finding that the majority of women in the industry report happiness with their work.
