First WAI Girls in Aviation Day A Success


We had planned to send out a news release today to follow up on our first Girls in Aviation Day on Saturday. So many glowing comments and non-aviation media coverage are rolling in that it’s tough to know what to report today other than: WAI Girls in Aviation Day was a huge success!
