Speakers at the AOPA Aviation Summit, Nov 11-13, 2010

Got my august 2010 issue of AOPA today.

It's got a list of the forums scheduled for the AOPA Aviation Summit.

Of the 33 forums scheduled, only 4 are given by women.

Now, I'm not complaining. Women are supposely only 6% of pilots (and that percentage has been steady since the beginning of aviation) so any more than 4 women making presentations would be disproportionate. I just think its an interesting statistic.

So, what are the forums led by women?

Keep Young and Fly Forever, by Janet Lapp, flight instructor, psychologist, author, motivational humorist

Pinch Hitter: Susan Parsons, special assistant, FAA

Women Leaders in Aviation: Dr. Peggy Chabrian, funder and President, Women in Aviation, Internatoional.

Finally,

The Kings on Avoiding Unwanted Adventure, John and Martha King, King School
