This page is to support some audio we’re trying to disseminate to get more women into aviation. Time is conspiring against Karlene so please help her out!
Play Karlene’s audio
To help get the message out there, we’re asking that people include a short snippet of audio on their website or in a blog of Karlene talking about the events she’s working hard to organise. Time is against her!
You can include the above audio on your blog with the following code.
The WPS Button is one of the more common audio players on the web. Although simple, it renders a timeline, it includes a volume control and pause button, and it renders some text.
The G Player
The G-player is simple and elegant and loads very quickly. It is 400 pixels wide by 27 pixels in height but cannot be resized. It features buttons to progressively seek through the track, a timeline slider and volume control. It will read the length of the audio as soon as it loads.
Simple Button 1
Simple Button 1 is as the name implies. Simple. It does nothing other than play and pause.
From Karlene’s Blog…
It’s been 100 years since the first woman earned her pilots license. To celebrate this anniversary, Mireille Goyer had a vision of introducing “2010″ new girls and women to aviation this year. For all who signed up, only 25% followed through. She’s a bit short of her goal with only a little over 500.
Did you know that in 1910, Raymonde de Laroche was the first woman pilot to earn her pilot’s license? During that year, only 3% of all pilots were women.
100 years later, Ari Fuji of Japan becomes the first female captain of a major Japanese commercial airliner. Way to go Ari!
Throughout the years there have been a multitude of firsts for women. But, today, women still only represent 6% of all pilots.
With 7 weeks until the end of the year, I’m asking for your help.
In honor of the 100 years of licensed women aviators, I’m holding a drawing and giving a $100 bill to one “Man or Woman” who introduces a girl or women to flying.
- Fill up your plane with a women or girls. Balloons. Gliders. Blimps.
- Take them to work, if you teach in a Full-Flight Commercial Simulator.
- Take a photo of your logbook entry of the flight.
- Take a photo of your passengers, or the women in the seat of the simulator.
- Write up a flight report in word format with women/girls names, the uniqueness of your flight, and a little about you.
- Sign up to follow this blog and then….
- Email “Everything” to Karlene at Karlene.Petitt@gmail.com and to Mireille at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mireille would love for you to sign up and register on her website so she can send you information and track your progress. But for the sake of the contest she said emails are just fine.
To register go to: http://www.centennialofwomenpilots.com/
You can see how you’re doing in her contest, plus she has incredible facts on the history of women in aviation.
Every entrant, pilot and passenger, will receive a digital certificate. Your flight will be posted on her websight. Trophies will be given for:
- Most women friendly airport.
- Person who introduced the most non-pilot women and girls to aviation.
- Most unusual introduction, aircraft type, location, registration, or passenger uniqueness.
From now until the end of the year, I will have a link attached to this post on the top right of my blog to reference this post. When you meet your the qualifications, your name will be added to the list of entries for the $100 drawing. Drawing will be held December 31st. Multiple entries welcomed and encouraged! For each women or girl you introduce, you’ll get an entry. Stuff the ballot! Take up 100 women!
- Go to your FBO and enlist support. Encourage them to create their own contest.
- Meet with the airport manager, can they help?
- Not a pilot? Email this link to pilots you know!
- Work for an aviation related company? Sponsor a contest.
- Get creative. Pass the word. Let’s make Mireille’s dream come true.
- If you want me to make your a flyer, ask.
We don’t have much time! Fly it Forward and let’s make the goal of 2010 new women and girls in the air, in the year 2010, become a reality for the 100th anniversary!
