Organization encourages girls in aviation

Girls With WingsI feel very fortunate to work for a company that allows dads to take a month off to spend time with their new kids. After my wife spent 12 weeks at home, it was my turn as primary care giver for a month with my baby daughter. Between feeding and playing, I’ve had much more time this past month to compose blog posts and get to know some other pilots on the web.

Today, via Twitter, I was introduced to the Girls With Wings organization (Follow them @GirlsWithWings). This organization seeks to introduce girls to aviation at a young age and encourages them to follow their dreams.

“Instead of encouraging our girls to wait for their knights in shining armor, how about encouraging them to explore the night in their shiny airplane?”
