Each year, the Institute for Women Of Aviation Worldwide (iWOAW) identifies the individuals and groups who exemplify the spirit of the Fly It Forward® movement by sorting through the thousands of reports and contest submissions it receives.
As the Covid crisis vanned, aviation enthusiasts, associations, and corporations returned to hosting large in-person events to fly it forward during the 12th annual Women Of Aviation Worldwide Week.
iWOAW thanks all participants for helping change the face of aviation and congratulates this year’s Fly It Forward® Award winners.
