Alys McKey was the first woman to fly in the state of Idaho, all because she answered the call in a newspaper ad requesting a “young lady to learn to fly for exhibition purposes”. There are now ads up all around Boise, Idaho looking for more ladies to fly during Women Of Aviation Week at Jackson Jet Center! 75 lucky girls and women can register for a free scenic flight. What do they need to bring? Just a camera to capture the memories!
Those on the ground will have are in for an exciting day as well as the airport welcomes Idaho aviation hall of famer and female NASA pioneer, GeneNora Jessen! Ms. Jessen has been flying since 1958 and will have her autobiography on hand and ready to sign. A buffet, aviation booths, fire truck demonstration and aircraft traffic controllers will round out the day’s activities.
Wanted: Ladies of all ages curious about what aviation can offer them. No previous experience necessary. Register now!
