Women With Wings

What is Women with Wings?

Lauren Crom and Katie McConville, two students from Aviation High School (AHS), will be presenting their Girls Solo Flight Project. These two spectacular women have designed a program called Women With Wings, based on a previous Senior’s project, to encourage and inspire the next generation of women to obtain their private pilot's license. With the number of women in the aviation industry being strongly overpowered by men—only 6% of licensed pilots are women—they hope to open the skies to women in this exciting field of piloting. The women in WWW will show the world that with hard work and a positive attitude, anything is possible.

In Support of Women With Wings…
Make me Write a $2000 Check!

I am bringing 400 soft-back copies of Flight For Control to the Fly It Forward Event and will donate $5 for every book sold at this event, to the Women With Wings.

I would love to write a check to Women with Wings for $2000 to go toward their program giving a girl the wings to fly.

We hope to see you at BEFA on Saturday March 24, from 10 to 3.

  1. What a fantastic cause, I love it Karlene! You're wonderful for supporting this. I hope you sell every copy that you take with you.

  2. Oh, those young women should go for it! Flying opens up so much positive feeling about what a person can do with her life. If you can fly, you can do lots of things that require you to take the initiative and jump in with both feet. I will be supporting your effort 100%, Karlene.
