Can’t help but to feel proud to support a cause that receives just not enough attention in our daily aviation world. Flying Women! Victoria Neuville, an avid blogger and pilot has created a truly amazing network of flying women on facebook and is constantly advocating for women to get involved in this wonderful world of flying. There is an essay writing challenge, which is ending March 13th, and the winner will receive $100.00 towards her first flight lesson, sponsored by Karlene Petitt.
I am currently seeking avenues to support the cause with potentially a seaplane lesson, sponsored by the seaplaneforum.com site. But: Psssst. Don’t tell anyone! We’ve even thought about a seaplane scholarship towards a seaplane rating. It’s a lot of work to get something together, so if you can help, contact me! Meanwhile, while you’re on facebook, make sure you add WFIF to your page, and help promote the event on March 12th.
For now, fans and friends of Women Fly It Forward are cordially invited to the Aviatrix Section of the Seaplaneforum.com, which is maintained by Victoria who announced this on her blog today. Signing up to post is required, like on all aviation forums, but it’s free and simple. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and mention “Women Fly It Forward”, together with your desired user name and password. I will be available for help and regular admin stuff, from uploading avatars, pictures and whatever else comes to mind. Help spread the word!
