How Women Of Aviation Week was founded
Women were not on aviation’s radar in 2009
In late 2009, Mireille Goyer, an airline-rated pilot and aviation educator, conducted a search for planned events to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the world’s first female pilot license issued to Raymonde de Laroche on March 8, 1910. To her dismay, she found none.
The first Fly It Forward® Challenge
Determined to not let this important milestone for female pilots go unnoticed, Goyer launched a worldwide campaign. Her goal was to honor the female aviation pioneers of 1910 by working towards fulfill their dream to see more women involved.
