Join the Air Force Association Central Oklahoma Gerrity Chapter in community partnership with the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission and AAR Corporation as we celebrate the state’s third annual Oklahoma Women in Aviation & Aerospace Day. The luncheon, reserved for aviation and aerospace enthusiasts, will provide an amazing opportunity to learn more about current Oklahoma general, business, and commercial aviation, the future of our industry, and how we can advocate on behalf of Aviation and Aerospace for young girls and women to pursue aviation interests. Join local officials and celebrities as you enjoy a catered meal, live music and speakers from the aviation industry.
This year, we will celebrate the life of Oklahoman and American aviator and Ninety-Nine, Geraldyn M. Cobb (March 5, 1931 – March 18, 2019), and salute the 90th year since the founding of The Ninety-Nines, Inc, International Organization of Women Pilots. Join aviators and aerospace workers from across the state and 99s from across the nation as we recognize the contributions of women to the military, commercial, and general aviation and aerospace industries. As a member or supporter of the State's aviation and aerospace community, you along with your friends and family are invited to join us for a small ticket cost of $15 (in addition to a small Eventbrite handling fee), an astounding value for the opportunity to network with other aviators and aerospace professionals. Proceeds for the event will benefit AFA aviation education programs. Airport operators and city officials, aviation and flying clubs, military and public safety flight personnel, commercial aviation employees, agriculture pilots, aerospace industry workers, business aviation companies, college students, career tech students and school groups are all encouraged to attend.Doors will open for registration at 10:30 am and the program will begin at 11:30 am. Register, share and then extend the gift of attendance to your colleagues and let’s celebrate this important milestone for aviation together!
