Fly it Forward Challenge!

Fly it Forward! is a grass roots, personal effort by Karlene Petitt to introduce more women to flying. She’s an airline pilot currently with Delta holding 6 type ratings and lives in Seattle. Karlene says, “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 woman to flying.”

Earlier this year Ladies Love Taildraggers featured Mireille Goyer’s effort to introduce ‘2,010’ new girls and women to aviation through her ‘Centennial of Licensed Women Pilots’ Event. Quite a few of us participated and Gail Schipper received a Second Place award for “Most Unusual First Flights”. Karlene’s mission is to help Mireille reach her goal of 2,010 by the end of the year and there’s only a few weeks to go.

    Thank you so much for the support! This is such an important event. All women pilots have been inspired by someone. I’m so glad I have an opportunity to help pay it forward. We will meet our goals, and are one step closer with your support!
