Ready to fly in Cornwall

August 29th 1911, Hilda Hewlett became the first British woman to earn a pilot license. Pete White, who organized the events at the Cornwall airport, said: “I’m proud Bodmin Airfield was able to fly 102 ladies, some in fancy dress with large hats and all sporting amazing smiles on landing; even the nervous ladies returned with a smile.

Ask and they shall come.

In Winnipeg, Canada, last weekend, ladies were invited to come to the airport. The catch? Only the first 200 to show up would get to fly for free. Ok… initial reports indicates that over 200 may have tasted flight during the day.

Ask and they shall come.

This weekend, in Niort, France, the Association Française des Femmes Pilotes invited Women Of Aviation of all walks of the industry to the airport to meet up and talk to the public about being a Woman Of Aviation. Attendees got to attend Air Traffic Control workshops, aviation weather services workshops, get autographs of famous women pilots, view the “100 years of women pilots” exhibit, and get autographs of famous French Women Pilots.

Ask and they shall come.
