Several members of the Winged Warriors Chapter were fortu- nate to see, sit in, and ask questions about multimillion-dollar aircraft on static dis- play. Some of the members gained valuable connections from networking events, edu- cational seminars, and volunteering their time to help the event run smoothly. The showstopper, however, was one of two flying Lancaster Bombers arriving at the convention and offering tours throughout the final day of the convention. The Winged Warriors Chapter also took part in the Girls CAN Fly event held by the Waterloo Wel- lington Flight Centre (WWFC). The WWFC offered free discovery flights to girls and young women between the ages of 8 and 18, flown entirely by female pilots. On the ground, the Winged Warriors Chapter members kept the younger girls entertained by offering crafts and their very own pink plane, handmade by chapter president Jodie Scarrow . ✈ Natalie Smith, lef, and Jodie Scarrow Congrats to the WAI Bluegrass Chapter!
