These women love aviation–as a group they are the best advertisement for the future of aviation in this country that I’ve ever seen. On Thursday night, the AOPA Air Safety Foundation’s Kathleen Vasconcelos gave the seminar “Top Five Mistakes Pilots Make,” which is humorous and sobering at the same time, and attendance was remarkable.
In addition to being an enthusiastic and participatory audience, this group practically hummed aviation. In the crowd was aerobatics pilot Julie Clark, and the seminar attendees positively twittered over the celebrity in their midst. To say that I am impressed with the women in aviation and the Women in Aviation conference is no small thing.
