Press Release: Flight Plan magazine

I received this press release a couple of weeks ago... and finally got my girdle in gear to place it here...

SkilCraft Publishing Announces The Launch of Flight Plan Magazine.
Celebrating Women and the Aviation Lifestyle.

Frisco, TX, February 4th 2009 SkilCraft Publishing, publisher of The Destination Resource Guide for General Aviation Airports announces the launch of their newest publication, Flight Plan Magazine . Through engaging feature articles, insightful editorials and stunning photography Flight Plan Magazine will proudly cover issues affecting women in all areas of aviation; from the young enthusiast to the Aeronautical engineer including ATC’s, cabin and flight crews, mechanics and women in all areas of the aviation industry.

“ For so long now the resources and outlets for women in aviation have been so limited. I was very excited when I heard that a new magazine would be out that would address some of the more pressing issues that women in all facets of the industry face” says Lynda Meeks, NetJets Pilot and founder of Girls With Wings. The goal of Flight Plan Magazine goes far beyond discussing FMLA and the best flight schools for women; they aim to encourage and inspire the next generation of young women to take flight.

Susan Pruitt, Publisher and Editor of Flight Plan Magazine says “Through our relationships with The Girl Scouts of America, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, CAP and various other schools and programs across the country we hope to encourage young girls to become interested in math, science, aerospace and technology while discovering the joys of aviation. We want them to know at a young age that Yes, girls can fly”.

The March/April launch issue of Flight Plan Magazine will be available at FBO’s across the country and through women’s organizations nationwide. Be sure to look for the Flight Plan Magazine booth at Sun-n-Fun and Oshkosh this year.
