Editor, the Advocate:
On behalf of everyone at Calhoun Air Center, I would like to thank the community for their support during Women of Aviation Worldwide Week. We had an overwhelming turnout in Victoria and Calhoun County, resulting in more than 250 first flights for girls and women.
This event was one of more than 70 events that took place on four continents with more than 5,300 girls and women taking flight in a small aircraft for the first time. Due to the success of this event, next year's planning is already underway for WOAW Week 2014, as well as an equal opportunity for men and boys to be announced for this summer.
