When I first came upon GWW, I was searching for aviation programs for women and girls. I was looking specifically for classes or academies or summer camps for girls who are interested in aviation and found the site that Lynda Meeks founded.

My 12 year old daughter is very serious about
becoming a pilot and wanting a career in aviation. She currently flies a Robinson R22 and is working toward her helicopter pilot certification.

I was thrilled to find this organization that promotes the aviation interests for girls and women. I am heavily involved as an engineering mentor for several local FIRST Robotics teams at the middle and high school levels and am passionate about recruiting girls to get more of them interested and excited about STEM careers (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Girls With Wings definitely fits the model of inspiration toward this end. Kudos to Lynda Meeks for donating her time and energy for such a worthy cause.

The Great!

Develop a program to partner with middle schools in teaching an optional STEM curriculum with an aviation module.

While reading the AOPA magazine I read about Girls With Wings and Lynda Meeks. I though what a great way to give back to the community, and specifically young girls wondering what they are going to be when they grow up. She mentioned in the article that she gives presentations on promoting aviation for girls. I hold a private pilot’s license, but I guess I never thought about sharing my experience with other women or girls. Lynda had the insight and energy to do so. I wanted our Girl Scouts, including my daughter to hear what Lynda had to say. I contacted Lynda via email. I really did not think she would respond, let alone make herself available for a presentation to our girls all the way in El Dorado Hills, California. Lynda replied back saying she would be available. Well, we made it happen. The presentation was one of the best presentations our girls have had. Lynda made the presentation like a “career day”. The presentation was very interactive with the girls all eyes on the many illustrations, activities and the speech about why girls too can be pilots and not just boys. We are very fortunate to have had Lynda give of herself and her experience in aviation. Thank you very much Lynda.

Since I am a private pilot, I know first hand that not too many girls think about going into aviation so this presentation from Lynda is great!

A young woman commercial pilot goes full-time on a mission to make a difference in the lives of little girls. That is not the usual in this age of "it's all about me". The right type of person always could tell something about a book by its cover and the Girls With Wings web site has a lot more to say at first glance. It is fun playful design that would appeal to little girls as well as adults. The content speaks for itself. In addition i have had some communication with the founder and that supports what i read about in this delightful web site. The founder pilot has made a personal sacrifice in life to give of herself to others in a mission for our children.
I'd change some terms like "role models" and honor the sacredness of a princess but Girls With Wings deserves your support.

Over the course of life i've found that so called "role models" are actors who play the role. How about "good examples". "You will know them by their fruits."

Currently this is, for the most part, a one woman operation with nationwide exposure; she needs your help to meet the demand for the Girls With Wings message. One of the many ways she intends to grow the network is by forming chapters around the country that can also make the presentations.
