|Our First Ever Aviation Inspiration Day was
held Saturday May 28th, 2011, at Fleming
Field in St Paul, MN, a day devoted to giving
girls the opportunity to explore and create
an interest in aviation! For the first
undertaking of such an event, we were
thrilled at the turnout - more than 250
attendees! This was thanks in large part to
Col. Amy Lauria at the Commemorative Air
"graduates" of the course also received an
Young Eagle Pilots Mike and Joel. It was the
first time that the girls could follow up the
presentation on "everything you need to
know to be a pilot" with time logged in an
airplane. It was quite a hit!
Wipaire, a manufacturer of floats for seaplanes. We
offered rides on WWII airplanes and vehicles and a
vintage fire-truck. Life Link III even brought their Civil
Air Patrol, Little Rembrandts - who gave lessons on
drawing with an aviation theme, a CAF PX, etc.
During lunch, provided by Wipaire, we presented a panel of women in other
non-traditional careers, like Air Traffic Control, Engineering, Maintenance and
CAP. Note: all other activities were for the entire family.
