ABOUT

Women Can Fly is a volunteer organization whose mission is to promote women of all ages to fly.  These are pilots and aviation enthusiasts who know the exhilaration of flight, the joy of discovering new horizons, the friendships born of shared visions, with the hope that more women will fulfill their dreams by joining us.

Women and girls age 8 and up will have the opportunity to experience a flight in a private plane with a volunteer pilot.

Online registration opened 1 April 2022 and ends the day before the event.

Events will take place rain or shine.  Flights will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. If the online registration is closed, you can still attend the event and sign up on the waiting list for a flight. There will be a mandatory Pre-Flight Briefing every hour starting at 9 AM that you must attend before you take your flight.  It will explain the basics of how a plane flies so that you can better understand and appreciate your flight as well as going over some important safety rules.

Additionally, each passenger will need to fill out the Passenger Release Form (used the "Sign-up page" below for the date you can attend) and bring it with you on the day of the event.
