Women Fly! 2012 --Training for the Future!

Women Fly! is The Museum of Flight's premier, annual two-day event. On Friday, March 2, more than 100 young women ages 13-17 will participate in a day of motivational and career-oriented activities that will allow them to meet and learn from professional women working in a variety of flight-related careers. Volunteering their time are dozens of women aerospace professionals: airport operators, pilots, air traffic controllers and engineers in all disciplines.

Highlighting the day is panel presentation with a stellar group of professionals sharing their experiences, including former astronaut Capt. Wendy Lawrence (USN, Ret.). Capt. Lawrence is a veteran of four space flights, including STS-114 Discovery, the Return to Flight mission.
