Aero-TV: Women In Aviation 2011 -- Inspire, Enthuse, Innovate

One of Aviation's Most Inspiring Events Helps Keep Aviation A Lofty Pursuit

It has become one of my favorite events... and even though I am very much a minority when it comes to the overall attendance/makeup of a WAI Convention. Nowhere in aviation is there an event that has as positive and inclusive  a spirit as does WAI... and I sure wish we could bottle it and distribute to those other events that so very much need a positive karma infusion (especially Lakeland...).

Over the course of a few days, we talked to a number of aviators... black, white, male, female, gay, straight, young, old, civilian and military -- and no matter our backgrounds and experiences, I have to tell you that the aviation world could not possibly be in better shape, "spiritually."

Based on all those I talked to... sometimes on frank and difficult subjects... and in the aura of one of the most positive events in aviation, we saw solid evidence that while the times may be hard, the entire community of flyers -- of any sex, race, background, preference, experience or persuasion -- looks forward to seeing their dreams for aviation flourish... and through them, we might all do just that.

With nearly 3,000 attendees, the theme of the 22nd Annual International Aviation for Women Conference that concluded in Reno, Nevada, on Saturday, February 26, 2011, was "Inspire, Enthuse, Innovate" and there was plenty of all three happening throughout the Conference.

Attendees represented all aspects and interests within the aviation community, including military, commercial, corporate and recreational flying.
