Despite the canceled #OSH20, Women in Aviation International (WAI) is kicking off the virtual WomenVenture for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh with the 25th annual Connect breakfast featuring dynamic virtual speaker Vernice ‘FlyGirl’ Armour. While this year’s WAI event will be virtual via a Zoom webinar, it will be free to all and features FlyGirl on a 60-minute live interactive session for pre-registered attendees.
Vernice 'Fly Girl' Armour
America’s first African-American female combat pilot, FlyGirl is the author of Zero to Breakthrough, and was an inspirational speaker at WAI’s 2017 annual conference in Orlando, Florida. Vernice propelled herself from beat cop to U.S. Marine Corps combat pilot in a record-breaking three years. Within months of earning her wings, she found herself flying over the deserts of Iraq supporting the men and women on the ground. From her experiences, FlyGirl created a seven-step process called the Zero to Breakthrough Success Plan. She will share highlights of this “Breakthrough Mentality” mindset during her July 22 presentation. This event is free thanks to our sponsors Avemco and United Airlines. The first 50 registrants will receive a special FlyGirl offer.
