I owned the world that hour as I rode over it - free of the earth, free of the mountains, free of the clouds, but how inseparably I was bound to them.

Women Can Fly

Hampton Roads Executive Airport is a proud host of the Women Can Fly annual event. Encourage girls and women to fly. Get a free ride in an airplane or helicopter. See static displays. Rain or Shine. Open to the public! Please visit www.womencanfly.com for more information.

Women Can Fly is a newly created volunteer organization whose mission is to promote women of all ages to fly. We are pilots and aviation enthusiasts who know the exhilaration of flight, the joy of discovering new horizons, the friendships born of shared visions, with the hope that more women will fulfill their dreams by joining us.

The inaugural flying event was launched in 2013 in Virginia, co-sponsored by the Ninety-Nines, Inc. (International Organization of Women Pilots), the Commonwealth’s Department of Aviation, Liberty University and Freedom Aviation, and the hosting airports.

Today, women pilots represent only 6% of the total pilot population. Women Can Fly intends to improve this statistic by making a national appeal, state by state, to all future female pilots. By providing information with hands-on experiences and demonstrating the sheer fun of flight, our goal is to encourage participants to fly recreationally, become a private pilot, or pursue a career in aviation. Representatives from the airlines, military, business and recreational aviation will be invited to showcase aviation’s diverse field for career opportunities.

Women and girls age 8 and up will have the opportunity to experience a flight in a private plane by a volunteer pilot.
