AN OUTREACH EVENT FOR EVERYONE!!!
Join us on March 11 -- 12, 2017 at the Abbotsford International Airport in BC as we again make world history as the largest single outreach event of its kind. Over 15,000 participants of ALL AGES from many communities around BC, Washington, Aberta and beyond are expected. FAMILIES WELCOME!
Our annual events in celebration of the week of International Women's Day CHANGE LIVES!! Females of all ages and their families gather from far and wide for a TRULY UNIQUE MISSION OF DISCOVERY. Our events are FUN, HANDS‐ON and COMPLETELY FREE to ensure no barriers to participation. This is thanks to industry, education and community partners.
One of the unique attractions at our events are the FREE FLIGHTS for female first‐time fliers. The first flight experience is so incredibly amazing that we just have to share it! It's often the catalyst that is needed to inspire interest in Aviation, Aerospace, Marine and Defence. The opportunities are endless!
Civilian and non‐civilian VIPs are on hand to meet with participants and a variety of cool aircraft and equipment is available for all to explore. Hands‐on displays and fun activities are provided by industry, agency and education partners for a tactile learning experience.
The event is open to the public with no registration required to attend. However registration is required for eligible females to fly. Visit www.girlsfly2.ca for more information and event updates.
