Women Light Up Oshkosh Sky
Women Light Up Oshkosh Sky

Dr. Peggy Chabrian      “Now in its twelfth year, WomenVenture, a week-long social and networking event during last month’s big EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, attracted hundreds of women who are part of the aviation community and enjoy getting together to be inspired, to network, and to just plain have fun.
     “More than a thousand women gathered in Boeing Plaza for the WomenVenture’s annual group photo, with most participants wearing their purple WomenVenture t-shirts.
     ““Our annual WomenVenture photo is a family reunion for us,” says Women in Aviation International President Dr. Peggy Chabrian (above).
     ““If we could bottle the energy in Boeing Plaza during this gathering, we could light up the sky,” Peggy declared.
     “For many participants, taking part in this annual photo is a favorite part of AirVenture week.
     “The backdrop for the 2019 photo is a beautiful United Airlines Boeing 787-8 with an all-female flight crew.
     “WomenVenture Wednesday" began with WAI’s Connect Breakfast, attended by more than 400 enthusiastic participants, and featuring former naval aviator and Southwest Captain Tammie Jo Shults, who shared her story of safely landing Southwest Airlines flight 1380 and talked about her upcoming book, Nerves of Steel.

Colonel Kim 'Killer Chick' Campbell
"I get asked- 'What’s it like to be a female in a fighter squadron?' Honestly, I never think about it. The important thing is to work really hard and be good at it, and then nobody cares what gender you are. I’m not a female fighter pilot. I’m just a fighter pilot, and I love it."

     “After the Boeing Plaza photo, the annual WomenVenture Power Lunch was held in Theater in the Woods and featured U.S. Air Force Colonel Kim “Killer Chick” Campbell. KC (her call letters) served in combat over Iraq.
     ““WomenVenture is a terrific way to share the passion we feel for aviation. Surrounded by airplanes and good friends, who would not enjoy today?” said Dr. Chabrian.
     ““A special thanks to United Airlines, one of our long-time supporters, not just with WomenVenture, but with ‘Girls in Aviation Day,’ as well,” she declared.
