Three passionate female pilots (the Fly Girls sponsored by Above All Aviation) are going to fly from Santa Barbara, CA to Fredericksburg, VA to compete in the Air Race Classic. Along the way they’ll connect with girls and young women to talk about aviation and the importance of young women following their dreams through presentations of the short documentary “Our Piece of the Sky” about women in aviation. The fly-ins are designed to be interactive and are a way of connecting with communities across the country and sharing their enthusiasm for aviation. Women make up just 6% of the pilot population worldwide and visibility is key for inspiring the next generation of female pilots.
The Above All Fly Girls (FB page) are kicking off a fundraising campaign for the June adventure. All donations will be used to pay for registration for the Air Race Classic, fuel to, from, and during the Air Race Classic, training fees, and accommodations. Please see the poster below for details.
