Movie Screening: As the Crow Flies
The Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada is hosting a screening of As the Crow Flies on Friday October 5th at 7:00 pm. As the Crow Flies follows a group of the top young Royal Canadian Air Cadets as they undergo seven weeks at an elite flight-training camp to get their pilot’s license, which normally takes six to eight months. Casting an especially affectionate eye on her female subjects, filmmaker Tess Girard—herself a graduate of the program—creates a unique and intimate portrait of an extraordinary, yet also very recognizable, group of 17-year-olds as they come of age.

Women in Aviation Conference 2019 - Long Beach, California
In March 1990, 150 people gathered for the first Women in Aviation Conference in Prescott, Arizona, on the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University campus.
No one knew what to expect at that first conference, but after a weekend of networking, it was clear there was a need for more women in the aviation industry. Soon, the conference became an annual event, and in December 1994, Women in Aviation International was established as a professional, non-profit organization.
Now WAI is gearing up to celebrate their 30th year of coming together. There’s no better place to be inspired, share your enthusiasm, and connect with others who share your passion for the aviation industry. Make this the year you attend a conference.
