People always make jokes about the lack of female pilots out there. I work at an airport and my co workers and I get pumped when we see a female pilot come through. They are a rare sighting. Well here are about 20!!! This video has been a project of mine for a couple months now. I really enjoyed making this and conversing with and getting to know the female pilots involved in this video. Every one of these women are very special. This video is mostly powered paraglider pilots, but a lot of these women are involved in other types of aviation as well! We have worked together in hopes of inspiring other women to get involved in not just powered paragliding, but aviation in general! As you can see from the video, different men have encouraged some of these amazing women to learn ppg, and some women have gone out and pursued this passion on their own! Each story unique and important.
