Fly it Forward is back – time for Girl Geeks to take to the skies!

Last March we were graciously invited to take part in Women of Aviation‘s Fly it Forward program, which was centred at our local Region of Waterloo Airport.

Check out our recap with pictures here.

This year, Women of Aviation Week is back, March 2nd to 8th, and the festivities to “Celebrate Women of Aviation – Engage – Experience – Inspire” in Waterloo Region at our airport are on March 7th from 9am to 4pm. We can’t recommend it enough. Let’s Fly it Forward, geeks. (We’ve been the third busiest airport in the world for this event. Let’s get to #1!)

Be sure to reserve your flight spot to go up in a small plane. The view over Waterloo Region is absolutely gorgeous. These flights start at 9am, and are reserved for girls (age 4 and up) and women who haven’t been in a small plane before. Spaces are limited, so don’t wait!

Other cool stuff to check out includes an experiential aviation career expo, a speaker’s panel (with special guest Dee Brasseur, Canada’s first female F-18 pilot and Natalie Panek, who’s an actual rocket scientist), and plenty of other amazing women of aviation.

For more information, check out the Women of Aviation CYKF Facebook page, and keep up with their Twitter feed: @FlyitForwardYKF.

It’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s Girl Geeks Waterloo Region! 🙂
