Women in Aviation Week

Women in Aviation Week March 8-12

Celebrate Women in Aviation Week by participating in the Institute for Women of Aviation Worldwide (IWOAW)’s event on March 8th. A French female pilot, Raymond de Laroche, received her pilot license on March 8, 1910. She is believed to be the world’s first licensed female pilot. Join Epic Flight Academy and aviators from around the world to celebrate Women in Aviation Week. You can even help go for a world record in a display of pink paper airplanes.

Epic is proud to have awarded aviation scholarships to Sadie Gerstle (2020), Bronwyn Rees (2019), Skye Sobzack (2017) and Victoria Taranowski (2016). We celebrate all of our female flight students and flight instructors who have earned their wings.
