A new feature at this year’s International Women in Aviation Conference is an all-female panel of helicopter experts, moderated by Helicopter Association International President Matt Zuccaro.

“The goal of the panel is to expose our members to the many career opportunities which exist in the rotary segment of aviation,” says WAI President Dr. Peggy Chabrian. “We want to highlight helicopters at this year’s Conference to underscore this segment of the industry as one of the many avenues our members can take as they pursue their careers.”

With the theme "Reaching Tomorrow Today," the WAI Conference will include seminars, workshops, networking events, speakers, and a commercial exhibit area.  The Conference concludes on Saturday evening, March 10, 2012, with WAI's annual banquet where over one half million dollars in scholarships will be awarded and the 2012 group of Pioneers is inducted into WAI's Aviation Pioneer Hall of Fame.
