Editor, the Advocate:
I would like to thank all of the women and girls who participated in the Women of Aviation Worldwide week. The Victoria Regional Airport had nearly 300 free rides that were made in either an airplane or a helicopter during the weeklong event.
This is truly an international event held for one week that has globally grown to 36 countries on four continents - an opportunity to impact females on a very large scale. Our team at Calhoun Air Center has been able to influence local girls and women from our small rural area on a level few metropolitan areas are able to compete with. Each year, it makes us proud to be associated with the volunteers and friends who have helped to make new friends that may be the future of aviation in the world.
Special thanks to all volunteers and the staff of Calhoun Air Center who helped make the event a huge success.
