Say ‘cheese,’ and break world record

If you’re a female pilot, current or not, or a female who has started flight lessons, meet at AeroShell Square at 10:30 a.m. today for a group picture of the largest gathering ever of women aviators.

If you can’t make the picture, still make time to sign a giant logbook that will track the number of female pilots attending EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2008. The logbook is displayed in the EAA Welcome Center, again allowing women pilots—current or otherwise and student pilots, too—to sign in and participate in an attempt to establish a world record for the largest single gathering of women aviators in history.

It’s all part of WomenVenture, a joint effort by EAA and Women in Aviation International, which aims to attract women as new pilots through the presentation of programs, seminars, speakers and events during the week.

According to 2007 FAA Airman data, women make up about 6 percent of the total number of pilots in the United States, or about 35,784 of the 590,349 pilots.

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
