WomenVenture

WomenVenture’s traditional group photo took on special meaning this year as WomenVenture celebrated its 10 th anniversary at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. Launched to provide a social and networking event for women during AirVenture, WomenVenture has also showcased the large number of women show-goers with the group photo, shot annually in Boeing Plaza, which is tangible evidence of the hundreds of pro-aviation women taking part in this week’s activities, and represents the women involved in aviation the world over.

The Air Line Pilots Association will host a reception for aspiring airline pilots as part of this year’s 10 th anniversary WomenVenture week at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. Slated for Friday, July 28, 2017, from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm, the reception has as its goal to have young pilots hear the experiences of active pilots for the major carriers ALPA represents and have their questions about a career as an airline pilot answered by those who have chosen it as a career.

The reception will be held on site at the EAA Partner Resource Center with light refreshments served. Although the ALPA reception is free, an admission ticket is required which may be picked up at ALPA’s Booth C-11 at the Education and Career Center at EAA’s Aviation Gateway Park.
