International Women’s day and Women in Aviation tribute

Most people would know who I would be talking about if I mentioned the name, Amelia Earhart. However if I were to ask you who Raymonde de Larouche, Harriet Quimby, Helen Richey or Florence Mary Taylor were, you would likely not have a clue. Today is International Women’s Day and in honor of that SunJet Simulations offers to you this tribute to all the amazing women who have broken through the gender ceiling to pursue their dreams of taking to the skies. In 2014, out of the roughly 134000 commercial pilots in the world, only 4000 were female**. Skill and passion are genderless and more and more you are seeing women start upon a career in aviation. This is something that not only should be encouraged.. but also celebrated. So to all the aspiring young female aviators out there, “You go girl!!!”
