THE Australian Women’s Pilot Association will be flying into Shepparton on Sunday, February 28 to take part in the Goulburn Valley Aero Club Ladies Information Day.
Local women interested in learning to fly or looking for a career in flying are encouraged to go along and have the chance to be taken up for a flight, and possibly take the reigns for a hands on flying experience.
Goulburn Valley Aero Club member, Lucy Simkin said, “There are many women in the industry and it’s nice to see, but there aren’t a lot in the Shepparton area. I know of young women in the area who are interested in learning to fly and this information day is a great place to start.
“It was the history and the beauty of it all that drew me to flying. It’s very peaceful up there, especially when you are by yourself.
“But it also gives you the ability to travel and see a lot of people. It can be very social.
“For those who are interested in taking the step toward flying, this opportunity is a great way to go about it.”
