An incredible, free event
for everyone!



Join us on October 1-2, 2022 at the Abbotsford International Airport in BC, Canada for the world’s largest diversity outreach event of its kind to inspire female future leaders from shop floor to top floor in Aviation, Aerospace, Marine & Defence. Everyone of any age, gender or citizenship is welcome to attend - it's completely FREE!

Our signature The Sky’s No Limit – Girls Fly Too! events change lives! This incredible event is held annually in the first week of October, during the week of International Day of the Girl, a Canadian-driven UN observance. Our events are always fun, hands-on and completely FREE for everyone to ensure there are no barriers to participation. This is due to the generous support of agency, industry, education and community partners as well as our amazing volunteers working together towards improving gender diversity in high tech fields.

Meet a NASA Astronaut in person! Civilian and non-civilian VIPs will be on hand to engage with participants, and a variety of cool aircraft and equipment will be available to explore. Incredible hands-on displays and activities are provided by industry, agency and education partners to showcase their capabilities and inspire you to new possibilities. The event is open to the public with no registration required to attend. Come check out our photo galleries from previous events!

FREE FLIGHTS for female first time fliers!!! Among the many attractions our event is famous for are the hundreds of free flights for female first-time fliers! The first flight experience is so incredibly amazing that we just have to share it! It’s often the catalyst that is needed to inspire interest in Aviation, Aerospace, Marine & Defence and other STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) based fields. The opportunities are endless!

Q: How do I get in on the free flights for female first-time fliers?

A:There are two ways to earn opportunities for the free flights:

  1. In advance of the event: SOCIAL IT FORWARD to win!

    All of our precious resources go towards providing the best possible event that is completely free and open to absolutely everyone - the more the merrier! Therefore we must rely on word of mouth to let people know about us - that's where you come in! By simply sharing our events with others you not only help us grow, you just might be rewarded with a specified number of tickets when you enter our Social it Forward contests.

    Follow our social media channels and watch for Social it Forward! challenges in advance of the event. Winners will be notified on social media and provided a special code to be entered in the reward zone below to unlock the booking portal. Social it Forward contests are open to residents of Canada and the U.S., however the booked seats must be assigned to eligible female first-time fliers that will be in Abbotsford, BC during the event and available to fly on the booked date and time. Fliers must be sure to check in at the designated area at least 30 minutes prior to the scheduled flight time or forfeit their free flight.

  2. At the event: TREASURE MAP AS A PASSPORT

    Aside from select early morning flights awarded as part of our Social it Forward challenges, the free flights for female first-time fliers (any age) may only be earned via Treasure Map as a Passport. Each eligible female first-time flier desiring to fly must present a fully completed map at the designated flight registration station before they may proceed with flight registration. While everyone is welcome to complete the map, only an eligible female first-time flier may use it to access the free flights.

    A fully completed map unlocks access to the free flights for each eligible female first-time flier. Flights are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, weather permitting and as we have available capacity. Once the map has been used for flight, the map is marked accordingly and returned to the participant as a keepsake.

    NOTE: While anyone is welcome to qualify for Treasure Map as a Passport, the map may be used only once to provide entry for a single eligible female first-time flier. Eligible female first-time fliers wishing to fly together must each present a qualifying Treasure Map as a Passport.

IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT THE FREE FLIGHTS:
