Pilots Sought For Women's Aviation Event

'Women Of Aviation Week' Event In Fredrick, MD To Be Held In March

The organizer of the annual "Women of Aviation Week" event in Fredrick, MD, is looking for a few good pilots. Aviatrix Victoria Neuville, who writes the blog "Toriaflies," puts on the event each year at Fredrick Municipal Airport in Fredrick, MD.

On her blog, she has issued a call to pilots who would be willing to volunteer to take women flying for the first time during the event. Not that it's particularly difficult. "Last year, due to overwhelming demand to help, I actually had to put many pilots on a waiting list!," she writes. "So this year, I am reaching out to past pilots first, and then my dedicated blog readers!"

According to Neuville's blog, only 6% of pilots are female. Women Of Aviation Worldwide Week celebrates the women of aviation past, present and future. "Over 400 ladies have been introduced to the aerospace industry over the past two years through Women Fly it Forward events thanks to volunteer pilots. Through theses efforts, Frederick earned the 'Most Female Pilot Friendly Airport Worldwide' award in 2011 and 'The Most Female Pilot Friendly Airport in the US' and 'The Most Female Pilot Friendly Airport Worldwide 1st Runner Up' awards in 2012."

Women Of Aviation Week is March 4-9, 2013. "Pilots are invited to fly participants on weekdays and Sunday at a time convenient to you," Neuville says. "We can provide participants and you provide the flight and report. Saturday March 9th marks our third annual marathon event with a day full of flight volunteering as we celebrate 50 years of women in space and provide free flights to those affected by breast cancer. Pilots and volunteers are welcomed to stay after the event for a thank you cookout sponsored by Aviation Insurance Resources."
