Am I High Aviation, LLC will celebrate the first “Women, Wings and Wonder” event May 15 at Stevens Point Municipal Airport (STE) in Wisconsin. The event starts at 10 a.m. with 45 minute presentations offered every hour until 6 p.m. The event will honor two centennial holidays: Women Pilots and Mother’s Day; while celebrating the first International Learn To Fly Month, organizers note.
Come celebrate the Centennial of Women Pilots and learn about the women who pushed the limits, starting with Blanche Stuart Scott, the first American woman to pilot an airplane on Sept. 2, 1910. Scott discovered that Glenn Curtiss, the airplane’s builder, had placed a small wood wedge behind the throttle to prevent her from becoming airborne. Scott was the first woman to literally remove the obstacle that kept her from getting airborne, organizers said. Without any flying lessons, Scott became the first American woman to pilot an airplane. In recognition for the need to attract more women to the aviation industry, Am I High Aviation, LLC will make available a gift certificate worth $290 towards a Private Pilot/Sport Pilot Weekend Ground School to any female that attends a presentation on May 15.
May 15 also is International Learn To Fly Day. Pilots, flight instructors and aircraft owners will be available to discuss the possibilities and enjoyment available in aviation.
