Sheltair Aviation, in partnership with Women in Aviation International, celebrated 2021 Girls in Aviation Day to educate and empower young women about different career fields, opportunities, and interests in the aviation industry.
The event was hosted with the collaborative support of Lisa Holland, President of Sheltair Aviation, at Sheltair TPA in Tampa International Airport and welcomed over 100 attendees and more than 40 volunteers.
The event provided the future generation of aviators a unique opportunity to come face-to-face with aircraft and their crews. The diversified onsite display included two Cessna 172, a Cessna 310, two helicopters, and the Icon A5.
In addition, TPA’s Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting unit and TPA Police showcased a fire truck, a police vehicle, and a furry member of their K9 team.
“As a woman in aviation, I’m honored to be in a position where I can help inspire young women in their path of becoming the aviation industry’s future,” said Holland. “It is important that we continue to support upcoming generations in our communities by representing them and providing viable options. Sheltair proudly supports Women in Aviation International and we look forward to further encourage and inspire today’s dreamers to be tomorrow’s achievers through this partnership.”
