For the third time in four years The Sky’s No Limit – Girls Fly Too! aviation and aerospace event has set a new worldwide precedent for the largest outreach event of its kind.
On March 7 and 8, around 9,800 girls, women and their families gathered at the Abbotsford International Airport for an exciting and free event, celebrating women in aviation.
In 2014, The Sky’s No Limit was held — with award-winning success — at the Langley Airport. Event founder Kirsten Brazier is a Langley resident and professional pilot of both airplanes and helicopters.
Among many unique attractions this year was the opportunity to experience the thrill of flying — females of all ages who hadn’t flown in a small aircraft before were invited to for a free helicopter ride.
Participants also got to meet and ask questions of NASA astronaut and US Navy helicopter pilot Wendy Lawrence.
The goal of the event is to encourage more females to consider pursuing a career in the aviation or aerospace industries.
