Community Outreach

Through our primary mission is to advance women in helicopter aviation, we have really begun to see the positive impact that our scholarship program has had on past recipients. From career advancements to job offers, the training and education opportunities we have been able to provide have been very rewarding.

Give It A Whirl

In 2016 we broke into the youth outreach circuit with our inaugural event – Give it a Whirl (GIAW), which we hosted in Louisville in conjunction with HAI HELI-EXPO 2016. Give it a Whirl is designed to bring together all of the different aspects of helicopter aviation and provide hands-on, innovative learning experiences to the youth and community…for free! Our goal is to increase educational opportunities and the exposure of helicopter aviation to young people and the future of our industry.

The second annual GIAW was a great success in Dallas. Later GIAW events were in Boulder City, Nevada and now scheduled for Anaheim, CA.
