For years, our team has traveled the country and attended Women in Aviation conferences to support and attract both women and men to all aspects of aviation. When we attended the event a few weeks ago, we were again impressed by this very vibrant side of our industry and saw many familiar faces. Conference attendees “made it a point to stop by and express their enthusiasm and excitement. And, they let us know that ‘this is exactly the kind of flying that I want to do',” noted one of our Captains, Melissa Bermudez. “It was great to see so many men and women who are passionate about the dynamic nature of what we do, including the direct customer interaction and service at the heart of our program.” In addition to the business aviation growth indicators offered by Wilson Leach in his 2010 Year-End Report, from which we published an excerpt in our winter issue, this may serve as yet another positive sign of what lies ahead.
