This year’s free event will be hosted in-person at LIFT Academy. The exclusive experience will consist of an interactive stations experience at our facility—exploring careers in aviation, listening to inspirational leaders within the aviation industry and connecting with female aviation professionals ranging from pilots to technicians to flight attendants and more! Lunch will be provided, and attendees will take home a LIFT swag bag! Space is limited and you won’t want to miss out on this fun-filled day! More information will be provided on this page and sent via email closer to the event date.


Did you know that women make up 5.44% of airline pilots, 3% of aviation CEOs and 2.3% of aviation maintenance technicians? To all the girls and women in aviation and all the girls who want to be in aviation, today is for you! Today, we celebrate LIFT Off, Females Who Fly, a Girls in Aviation Day Seminar where we introduce you to amazing women doing amazing things in aviation.

Our goal is to provide you with a peek into the amazing careers aviation has to offer and to show you that the possibilities in aviation are endless.

LIFT Academy wants to help close the gender gap in aviation and show our young viewers what they are capable of becoming. We hope you enjoy learning from our guests and find the inspiration you need to follow your dreams. Thank you for your participation!


We can’t wait for you to join us for LIFT Off! You’ll have the opportunity to hear from inspiring women who grew up just like you. They set goals, they took chances and they were confident in their ability to make things happen. You can, too! To get you ready for the event, we’ve created a Spotify playlist that includes some of our female aviator’s favorite inspirational songs as well as some of our favorites at LIFT Academy!
