“The Sky’s No Limit – Girls Fly, Too”

An incredible, free event for everyone! Join us Sat/Sun October 5-6, 2019, from 09:00 to 5:30pm at the Abbotsford International Airport

Join us on October 5-6, 2019, at the Abbotsford International Airport in Abbotsford, BC, Canada, for the world’s largest diversity outreach event to inspire female future leaders from shop floor to top floor in Aviation, Aerospace, Marine & Defence. Wherever you live, whatever your age or gender- everyone is welcome – FREE!

Our signature The Sky’s No Limit – Girls Fly Too! events, traditionally held annually during the week of International Women’s Day, change lives! In 2019, the event will be held during the week of International Day of the Girl. Read the statement from the President here. Our events are fun, hands-on and completely FREE for everyone to ensure there are no barriers to participation. This is thanks to the generous support of agency, industry, education and community partners working together to improve gender diversity in high tech fields.

Civilian and non-civilian VIPs are on hand to meet with participants, and a variety of cool aircraft and equipment is available for all to explore. Incredible hands-on displays and activities are provided by industry, agency and education partners to showcase their capabilities and inspire you to new possibilities. The event is open to the public with no registration required to attend. Come check out our photo galleries from previous events!

FREE FLIGHTS!!! One of the unique attractions at our events are the free flights for female first-time fliers. The first flight experience is so incredibly amazing that we just have to share it! It’s often the catalyst that is needed to inspire interest in Aviation, Aerospace, Marine & Defence and other STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) based fields. The opportunities are endless!

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE FREE FLIGHTS: Flight registrations will be available both in advance, and on site at the event. We announce surprise seat releases on our website and social media so best to follow all our channels and check this page often for updates! Many seats will also be available on site at the event. Remember, although the free flights are COMPLETELY AWESOME, they are only a tiny portion of the amazing things you’ll see and people you’ll meet at this incredible event – come see for yourself!

ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE FREE FLIGHTS: This event is one of our means to inspire female future leaders in high tech fields. We offer more here: www.achieveanything.ca If you’re unclear why this is needed, please browse through our websites to learn more. The flights are an expensive and precious gift we use to draw girls and women to check out the rest of the event. The flights are the only part of the event not open to the guys, without exception – please don’t ask. We encourage the guys to join us and show their support as they have fun checking out all the other offerings at the event.

We’re looking for volunteers! Any gender, age 15 and up
