The Utah State University Aviation Technology Program will celebrate Women of Aviation Worldwide Week with a Fly It Forward event for women interested in aviation from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 9.


Women of Aviation Worldwide Week is an annual, international week of awareness and outreach celebrating all women of aviation and their contribution to the betterment of the air and space industry. 


USU Aviation will offer women and girls the opportunity to fly in one of USU’s Diamond Aircraft planes for 30 minutes at a discounted rate. The cost will be $40 per individual or $50 per aircraft. The aircraft rate allows approximately three individuals to fly in the aircraft. This flight opportunity is available for females only.


Free, guided tours will also be available for those who want to learn about the professional pilot and maintenance management degree options at USU.  Visitors will experience the USU facilities at the Logan-Cache airport including the hangars, flight simulator lab and maintenance facilities.


“We welcome future women of aviation as they visit our facilities to explore their opportunities,” said Sean Heiner, chief flight instructor. “We have seen an increased enrollment in women entering our programs and hope that trend continues.”


Currently women are earning their degrees in both the professional pilot and the maintenance management programs at USU. Throughout the week, their achievements will be highlighted on the aviation website found at aviation.usu.edu.
