On December 5, Karlene Pettit is organizing a huge celebration event in Renton, WA, with the goal of introducing between 150 and 1000 girls and women to flying.
I am calling on all pilots to show his or her support for Karlene’s effort. Please conduct introductory flights at your local airport on December 5. If you can’t fly, please ask one of your pilot friends to take a girl or women on an introductory flight for you.
Let’s make sure that girls and women worldwide know that we welcome them to our unique world and that we are eager to share flying with them.
Karlene Pettit, Delta Airlines A330 pilot, wants to make Renton Airport, WA, the ‘most female pilot friendly airport in the world'.
In order to get a chance to win the title, at least 100 girls and women (not holding any pilot licenses) must take a short flight at the Renton Airport. This will set a one-day record for Renton Airport.
Karlene Petitt, Delta Airlines A330 pilot and author, is offering a $100 USD cash reward to one lucky pilot. To qualify for the price, pilots must introduce girls or women to flying between March 6 and December 31 2010 and send a flight report to register the flights before January 6, 2010. One flight = One entry. The drawing for the $100 USD price will be held on January 7, 2010.
