Volunteers Needed! The Sky's No Limit - Girls Fly Too! Aviation & Aerospace Outreach Initiative Cyxx March 7-8

Recommended Posts

Your help needed to inspire generations of future leaders at an EPIC event!


On March 7-8 2015, over 10,000 Lower Mainland girls and women of all ages and their families will be coming to the Abbotsford International Airport to discover and explore aviation and aerospace for the first time. Our events are fun, hands-on and completely FREE thanks to industry & community partners.

One of the unique attractions at our events are the free flights for female first-time fliers. The first flight experience is so incredibly amazing that we just have to share. It’s often the catalyst that is needed to inspire interest in aviation and aerospace, whether as a pilot, air traffic controller, aircraft mechanic, or aeronautical engineer. Opportunities are endless.
Families are welcome at our events, and all participants are able to meet civilian and non-civilian VIPs, explore cool aircraft on static display and engage in hands-on learning activities. The RCAF, Air Cadets, Canadian Coast Guard and RCMP are all confirmed participants with VIPs and aircraft. Many facets of the aviation and aerospace industries will be represented.
The event is about education as much as it is about inspiring girls and women. Therefore everyone - male and female alike - is encouraged to experience the magic and uniqueness of this event and get involved.
AVIATION INDUSTRY PERSONNEL - Volunteers enthusiastic about aviation - male and female - are needed to help assure a successful event! For more information and to apply please visit www.girlsfly2.ca and select "Volunteer!" Pilots, AME's and Ops Personnel able to help load/unload aircraft please specify within the form.


HELICOPTERS NEEDED - Private or Commercial helicopter with pilot to help with introductory flights for female first time fliers. One aircraft needed for the organizer to fly. 4-6 passenger seats preferred, 3 seats considered. Private donation or corporate partnership opportunities - please contact kirsten@girlsfly2.ca for more information.


INDUSTRY PARTNERS - Companies interested in promoting the advancement of women in aviation and aerospace at the world's largest and most unique outreach event of it's kind please contact kirsten@girlsfly2.ca for more information.

Still need volunteers!!!! Even if you're not sure about the whole gender balance thing it's still the coolest event ever - and we've even got a female astronaut/USN heli pilot! From shop floor to top floor, we're inspiring future leaders!
