iWOAW has a concise mission statement...achieve Gender Balance in aviation. Listen in to hear Mireille Goyer explain her unique plan. If you are already a pilot, learn how you--or your organization--can help and how, in doing so, you will be eligible to win amazing prizes like Apple Watches or i-Pad Minis.  And, the lady (young or old)  you help in the process will be eligible these prizes as well as a chance at one of three flight-training scholarships.

If you are a female who would like to experience flight--whether just a single airplane flight or continuing flying lessons--this is a podcast you won't want to miss. You just might get that airplane flight and win one of those great incentive prizes too!
