OAOA / OAC - Women In Aviation Day

Sat, Dec 9, 2017 10:00am - Sat, Dec 9, 2017 12:00pm

The event will be a luncheon on December 9 from 10-12 in Hangar 14 at Wiley Post (Atlantic Aviation’s Hangar14 at Wiley Post Airport)

The event is a fundraiser for the OAOA Scholarship Fund so there will be a cost of admission of $15 which will be sold by advance ticket purchase only.  No tickets will be sold at the door so though it’s technically public the public can’t just walk in and attend.

In case you were wondering about the date – December 9 was chosen as ‘Women in Aviation Day’ to honor Pearl Carter Scott who was the youngest pilot in the united states in 1929.  She is Chickasaw and flew with Wiley Post.  There was a movie recently filmed about her called ‘Pearl’ and you can read more about her here:https://www.chickasaw.tv/profiles/eula-pearl-carter-scott-profile
