Taking the Next Step: Fearless, Graceful, Together
What an inspiring conference. We networked, we learned, we succeeded. We united vision, purpose and energy in one magnificent location. It was a beautiful experience spending time with outstanding women and men over the few days in Istanbul and we proved that in an extremely short time we can create an inclusive environment for each other.
We wish to thank all present for making it so amazing. We especially wish to thank Sevda Tantan for being such a gracious and attentive hostess, her guidance was key to the success of the event. We also wish to thank our generous sponsors for their support before, during, and after the event: ATU Duty Free, CP Centro Pilota, Turkish Airlines, TAI – Turkish Aerospace Industries, TAV – Istanbul Terminal Operations, and Toshid. Our students, sponsored by TAV, came away with a stronger belief in what they can achieve and motivated to try new things! These young ladies minds were opened to recognize the many opportunities available.
We all discovered what an exciting city is Istanbul! All our senses were engaged, especially taste and sight! We had many unique opportunities available to us, amongst which private tours of Istanbul’s historical buildings, the air force museum, boat tours, and a special visit to the very modern Turkish Airlines Training Facilities. Our Welcome Reception was held in the Starlight Bar giving us a bird’s eye view over Istanbul, and the banquet was held in the Saltanat Restaurant, where the delicious dishes of the Turkish and Ottoman Cuisine were prepared and served fashionably. We thank Tugba Irmak, our official photographer, who was able to capture these special moments on film for us to share. (visit the AWE gallery
and AWE facebook page
The Saturday Conference was inspiring and really showed how we can “Take the Next Step: Fearless Graceful and Together.” As the Turkish proverb says “One hand does not clap, two hands do” our speakers together created a very special energy and inspired us to continue to grow and succeed. Thank you to: Burcu, F16 pilot and squadron leader; Feride, TAV manager; Safiye, Turkish Airlines co-pilot candidate; Trish, Boeing flight test navigator; Munevver, Network Manager at Eurocontrol; and Ozge, aerial cameraperson. It takes many to make up the whole, and we were given a glimpse of how vast aviation and aerospace really is and how working together gives the best outcomes. Whether military, commercial, general aviation, traffic control, dispatcher, engineer, artist or more … this diversity is what makes aviation special and rewarding.Souvenir Program Turkish Women in Aviation History Video UTED (Turkish Technic's magazine) Aviation For Women Magazine
As one participant put it ‘The Future is in the Skies’ and ‘The affect of what we do is felt by many.’
We look forward to returning to Istanbul.
Teşekkürler Ederim Istanbul!

July 9, 2009— TANNKOSH, Europe’s largest fly-in for sport aviation, takes place this year July 17-19 at the Tannheim airport located at the foot of the Bavarian Alps in the Allgäu region of southern Germany. Hosted for many years by the Tannheim Flight School, owned by the popular brother and sister aerobatic duet of (Red Bill pilot) Matthias and Verena Dolderer, the 2009 event promises to be better than ever.
With a format similar to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, TANNKOSH ’09 offers more than a dozen pilot forums, nearly 100 vendors and an air show that features the best Europe has to offer, from historic vintage airplanes and warbirds, to homebuilts, unlimited aerobatics and current military hardware.

Anyone on Aeroshell Square at 10:30 a.m. on Friday found their way blocked by a sea of pink-shirted women that covered the concrete from the KC-135 Tanker to the Ford Trimotor to the DC-3s. An estimated 1,000 women pilots
turned up to be seen and photographed in an effort to set a record as being the largest gathering of women pilots
in one place at one time.
"This idea, spawned by EAA consultant Patricia Luebke, has taken off," said Elissa Lines, VP of Development for EAA. "We hope that the sheer number of us gathered here today on AeroShell Square will inspire other women and girls to take a chance on aviation, or even just to try out flying for fun, or more."

Back in the year 2000 when I joined Women in Aviation I was extremely excited to have found this organisation and likeminded people. In fact it was an engineer (my mentor) that actually recommended me joining WIA and gave me my first couple of years membership as a present.

Many people think of aviation as composed almost entirely of pilots. They overlook the great non-flying group of workers who are necessary to build the planes and keep them running.
Too often little attention is paid to individual talent. Instead, education goes on dividing people according to their sex, and putting them in little femminine or masculine pigeonholes.
Knowledge is the first step towards progress. Please help me in compiling this list, our way of saying thankyou, by giving public recognition, to these ladies who have paved the way.
