The Sky’s No Limit – Girls Fly Too!
In 2012, Kirsten Brazier (WG #1372) established The Sky’s No Limit – Girls Fly Too!, an outreach initiative to share her passion for aviation and energize more females to discover the amazing opportunities available to them in aviation, aerospace and space.
This year marks the third time in four years that The Sky’s No Limit – Girls Fly Too! set a new worldwide precedent for the largest event of its kind. Over 9,800 participants attended the aviation and aerospace discovery event for women, and 1741 females flew -- for free.
Brazier, a fixed-wing and helicopter pilot based in Canada, is on a mission to inspire more women to pursue aviation and aerospace trades.
“The majority of our target female audience have no experience with, or exposure to aviation. Before we can engage and inspire females with the limitless opportunities available in aviation, aerospace and space, we must first attract them to the airport and grab their attention,” said Brazier. “We can think of no better way to do this than by taking them flying for the first time – the first flight experience is so incredible we just have to share it!...We welcome all ages to our events because it’s never too late to spark an interest in the many facets of aviation, aerospace and space.”
“From shop floor to top floor we’re inspiring future leaders!” Brazier exclaims. You can read more about the event here.
