The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association of Australia applauds the Liberal/National government announcement of $4 million in grass-roots engagement funding to encourage greater numbers of women into aviation.
“The government should be applauded for this important announcement and initiative, recognising the need to provide stronger support and encouragement for young women seeking aviation careers and futures,” said Executive Director, Benjamin Morgan.
“Building on the success of AOPA Australia’s Junior Pilots program, our association and partners will be looking forward to working alongside the government in welcoming more young women into our general aviation community”.
Throughout 2018, AOPA Australia visited multiple locations in NSW, VIC, ACT, QLD and SA to provide youth-engagement and support through its Junior Pilots program, providing flight simulation STEM learning experiences and pilot mentoring.
