WAI Australian chapter members attended last weekends Wings Over Illawarra Airshow in Wollongong, NSW.
Chapter Membership Outreach team leader Lea Vesic was thrilled with the number of women and girls that came to see her and the other WAI volunteers at the stall.
“This has been an amazing weekend, we have had over 30,000 people come through the gates for the air show and an overwhelming response to our Women in Aviation stall.”
The airshow ran over three days with Friday being a trade day for exhibitors. Aviatex organisers of the trade show, were very happy with the amount of people who attended the very first trade day to be held at WOI. Our chapter would like to thank Aviatex for their generosity and support of our stall. Saturday and Sunday were extremely busy days with the public attendance and the weather was perfect for any airshow, not too hot, not too windy and not too cold!
Lea intends to attend as many events as possible to showcase our Australian chapter to the public and to help spread the word about our chapter initiatives and programs.
We would like to thank the following members for their generosity and support of the weekend; Lea, Mark, Margaret, Christine, Yvonne, & Tammy and look forward to attending next years event!
