From WAI2011: A Fascinating Look At The World Of NextGen and Our Future Cockpits
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 Branch.
