Women in Corporate Aviation Link Up at EBACE 
Women in Corporate Aviation's (WCA) international members are exhibiting as guests of WAI corporate member Swan Heights at the European Business Aviation Conference and Expo (EBACE) convention in Geneva, Switzerland May 4-6, 2010. Members will be volunteering to share information on WCA. In the first collaborative effort, Gulfstream Aerospace and WCA will be co-hosting a breakfast in honor of Women in Aviation in Europe at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on May 4, before the opening ceremony. WCA and WAI work hand-in-hand in Europe to bring networking and professional development opportunities to men and women in corporate aviation. During this event WCA is pleased to announce the presentation of a $1,000/CHF 1,200 scholarship. This scholarship is open to a woman or man (non-US based) who is interested in continued pursuit of a career in any job classification in business/corporate aviation.
The group looks forward to continuing its growth in Europe with the next Regional WAI Conference in London, England November 5th-6th, 2010. Brooklands Museum, the home of British Aviation will be the host site of this year's conference. The planned speakers include Captain Suzanna Darcy-Hennemann, record setting 777 Captain with Boeing, Gabriella Somerville, Managing Director ConnectJets, Gretchen Burrett, the recently appointed Group Director, Safety Regulation of the Civil Aviation Authority, Lt. Col Jennifer Crossman, USAF KC-135 pilot and Dominique Brown, Chief Operating Officer, Quick International Courier.
Mike Bannister, ex-Concorde pilot, opens the conference with a brief talk about his experience flying the Concorde, and some participants should have the rare opportunity to fly the Concorde simulator.
Booking via the www.wai.org  web site will open shortly. Posted on Blue Sky: African Aviators to Be
