Abbotsford Event Sets World Precedent – 1741 Girls Fly Free

Over 9,800 participants attend hands-on aviation & aerospace discovery event for women by Kirsten Brazier, former Air BC employee

For the third time in four years The Sky’s No Limit – Girls Fly Too! annual aviation and aerospace outreach events have set a new worldwide precedent for the largest outreach event of its kind ever held. On March 7-8, 2015 over 9,800 females and their families from around Southwestern BC and beyond gathered at the Abbotsford International Airport for an exciting free outreach event.

Among many unique attractions was the opportunity to experience the thrill of flying - females of all ages who hadn’t flown in a small aircraft before were invited to register in advance for a free helicopter ride.
