WOMEN WANT TO LEARN TO FLY TOO

Flying - - INBOX - Linda Mat­son via email

'The ed­i­tor's let­ter in the Novem­ber is­sue ["Do Mil­len­ni­als Want to Learn to Fly?"] led to a very' 'spir­ited dis­cus­sion in our house­hold re­gard­ing' mil­len­ni­als. I agree with Stephen Pope's as­sess­ment of changes the avi­a­tion com­mu­nity wilt peed to make to at­tract stu­dent pi­lots from the mil­len­nial and younger gen­er­a­tions. How­ever,' would sug­gest one ad­di­tional change is para­mount. More than half of the tar­get au­di­ence is fe­male and/or mi­nor­ity. Un­til the di­nosaurs who so thickly pop­u­late avi­a­tion die off, womer and many oth­ers will not feel wel­come at (most) lo­cal air­ports. We have only landed at one where it was as­sumed it was my air­plane' Ind not that the owner or my hus­band must be some place nearby.'
