Reaching the next generation

A career in aviation isn’t limited to being a pilot, flight attendant or mechanic. Dozens of girls ranging in age from 13 to 19 learned what their options are during the annual Women Fly event at the Museum of Flight in Seattle March 5.

The event, part career fair, part college fair, is designed to let the girls gather information about potential careers from mentors and college officials.

The day consisted of workshops and a panel discussion with women in aviation from all over the world. At the end of the event the girls lined up to have their programs signed. Here a young visitor collects the signature of Michelle Bassanesi of Italy. Bassanesi, a flight instructor, is the founder of Aviation and Women in Europe.
