Fly It Forward® Challenge
Celebrate the anniversary of the world’s first female pilot licence. Fly It Forward®
Together, we are changing the face of aviation.
WOAWies are fulfilling the vision of the 1910 female aviation pioneers – to see women get an equal opportunity to contribute to the air and space industry.
United across borders, WOAWies give girls of all ages a fair chance to fall in love with aviation to celebrate the anniversary of the formal entry of women in the air and space industry.
They open the doors of their facilities and invite women and girls to explore our industry’s multiple facets, including flight – hands-on.
Acting jointly, WOAWies organize local WOAW activities, conduct Fly It Forward® flights and empower women and girls in their local communities. They echo each other’s will and are changing the face of aviation across the globe.
Launched by Mireille Goyer in January 2010 to celebrate the centennial of the world’s first female pilot licence in a meaningful manner, the Fly It Forward® movement has grown exponentially since its inception and has pressure the industry’s stakeholders to take action.
Thus far, WOAWies have made it possible for more than 420,000 girls of all ages to discover the multiple facets of the air and space industry – hands-on. Fly It Forward® pilots have flown balloons, gliders, ultralights, airplanes and helicopters for nearly 11,000 hours to introduce 69,738 girls of all ages to flight in a small aircraft.
