Serving the Lehigh Valley

2007 QC Fly-in

Women Fly!

LVGAA is proud to host the Women Fly! event at Queen City Airport, 1730 Vultee Street, on March 9, 2013, 10am - 4pm, during Women of Aviation Worldwide Week.

Studies demonstrate that one of the key factors to explain the low percentage of women in the air and space industry is the fact that girls and women don't consider the industry as an option because it is perceived as a "boy's club". Women of Aviation Worldwide Week is about changing that perception.

Lehigh Valley General Aviation Association (LVGAA) is a non-profit organization representing pilots, aviation businesses, and friends of aviation who are dedicated to promoting General Aviation in the Lehigh Valley.

Young women participants will experience the world of flight through free discovery flights in general aviation aircraft (weather permitting) and through interactive discussions with representatives of aviation-related businesses, and of recreational flying. They will have an opportunity to see static displays of aircraft and participate in educational activities provided by the pilots of the 99's (an organization dedicated to promoting aviation among women).

NOTE: Airplane rides will require a signed waiver and parental consent forms for those 18 and under. Flights will be given based on a first-registered/first-served basis, weather permitting.
