AirSpace Minnesota board member Cheri Rohlfing helped create the first ever all girls Delta Air Lines WING (Women Inspiring our Next Generation) Flight held on Saturday, September 26 – Girls International Aviation Day.
"The WING Flight was all about inspiring young ladies to dream big and know that they can be successful in STEM and aviation careers,” said Rohlfing, Delta Air Lines First Officer & Ambassador. “We filled a Boeing 737-800 with over 120 girls ages 12 - 18, mostly from the Twin Cities area, and flew them from MSP to the amazing Seattle Museum of Flight (MOF).
“Every aspect of the WING flight was completed by women, which was an important piece demonstrating to the girls that they can do whatever they set their minds to accomplish. In addition, the MOF arranged for many folks from NASA, including two female astronauts, to interact with the girls during a 'speed mentoring' lunch. It was such a great day and I'm so proud to work for a company who gives back to the world around them!"
