Glacier Air WOAW17 was a Success!
Thanks to everyone who joined us on Saturday for our #WOAW17 #flyitforward event!
Despite the weather we still managed to get 13 flights and 39 gals ranging in age from 12 to 77 safely in the air! Unfortunately another 16 ladies didn’t get in the air before Mother Nature shut down our flights. Cameron and Akshay did a great job flying and dodging clouds in the rain until the weather deteriorated below safe limits.
Special thank-yous to Mireille Goyer and Mayor Patricia Heintzman for coming out to support us and help cut the cake!
Our guest speakers included Marcia Strang from YVR, Liz Taitt Kalanzi, medivac pilot for Helijet, Kevin Maher from Air Canada, Candice from BCAC talking about scholarships and Nora & Lorna, both Citation corporate pilots!
We wouldn’t be able to pull off this event without the endless support from the BC Coast 99’s who helped make this event such a success and to Warwick for the filming! We are really looking forward to the video once the editing is finished!
So far we have had one of girl, Sally Bennett, sign up for flight lessons and she’s eager to win the First Solo Challenge! Now all we need is cooperative weather so she can start flying!
Glacier Air is already planning and looking forward to #WOAW18!
