One of the high points of our year is our annual trek to the
Women in Aviation gathering. Unfortunately; due to commitments
overseas, we're going to miss most of the event this year but for
those of you with the ability, we can't recommend a visit highly
enough... no matter what gender you represent.
This year's rendition takes place in Dallas (which we visited a
few days ago for the 2012 HeliExpo). The 23rd Annual International
Women in Aviation Conference will be held from Thursday, March 8
through Saturday, March 10, 2012. This year's Conference will take
place at the Hilton Anatole. Participants in the 2012 WAI
Conference will be immersed in the tactics and strategies necessary
for successful aviation careers. More than 3,000 women and men from
all segments of the aviation industry are expected to attend.
Last year's NextGen panel is an example of the high quality
information and presentations to be enjoyed at such events. The
NextGen panel was presented by WAI President Peggy Chabrian and
featured Donna Taylor, manager of the FAA’s Airports
Division, Northwest Mountain Region; Amy Lind Corbett, regional
administrator for the FAA's New England Region; Teri Bristol, FAA
vice president of Technical Operations Services; and Nancy Risso,
manager of the Eastern Region Flight Standards Division NextGen
