100th Anniversary of Women in Flight
Wednesday, March 24, 2010
The first time a woman piloted an airplane was 100 years ago this month. Raymonde De Laroche, a French female balloonist, learned to fly a fixed-wing aircraft and in 1910 was the first woman to ever be awarded a pilot certificate.
There are many associations worldwide for women aviators, such as The Ninety-Nines, Women in Aviation International, the International Society of Woman Airline Pilots and other groups. Recently, Women in Aviation International concluded its annual meeting. It was held in Orlando, Florida, USA and nearly 3,000 people attended, with visitors from 20 different countries. Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Director Randy Babbitt spoke.
Phoenix East Aviation encourages both men and women to learn to fly. Among the PEA students and instructors are many women, and the Assistant Chief Pilot is female. Whether you are an international student or from the U.S., whether you are male or female, PEA opens its doors to you. See www.pea.com for more information on flight training.
