March 1-9, 2018 – Elevate Aviation Cross Country Tour
Each year Elevate Aviation travels to cities across Canada to host tours of the aviation industry. This year as we visited 9 cities, women of all ages got to hear amazing stories and ask questions to pilots, air traffic controllers, airside operations staff, flight attendants, aircraft maintenance engineers, members of the Royal Canadian Airforce and more before a complimentary lunch and a behind the scenes tour of various airport facilities. These tours take place each year and seats fill up quickly so keep checking back for the chance to reserve your seat in 2019.
