When Craig Fuller, AOPA’s president, wrote “What you will see from us in 2011 is a real effort to Rally GA. We don’t just want to watch for a turnaround, we want to do everything we can to make it happen!” in the January 2011 edition of AOPA Pilot Magazine, he was not just talking; he meant it.
So when he heard that the Women of Aviation Worldwide Week celebration aims to promote aviation to girls and women and includes a drive to introduce girls and women to flying, he had to do something. AOPA contacting me and ask if they could become one of our Silver Sponsors.
Whoa, that is so refreshing. Not just words, actions. That’s exactly what Women of Aviation Worldwide Week is all about. No just talking about wanting to have more women involved, doing something about it. With such positive attitude, AOPA, the world’s largest Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, is a perfect sponsor for this first ever annual celebration of the Women of Aviation. We are so happy to have them on our side.
