The Sky's No Limit

Girls Fly Too!
JOIN US SAT/SUN MARCH 11-12, 2017
09:00 - 5:30 at THE ABBOTSFORD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
The annual events in celebration of the week of International Women’s Day change lives. Females of all ages and their families gather from far and wide for a truly unique mission of discovery. Our events are fun, hands-on and completely free to ensure there are no barriers to participation. This is thanks to agency, industry and community partners.
One of the unique attractions at our events are the free flights for female first-time fliers. The first flight experience is so incredibly amazing that we just have to share it! It’s often the catalyst that is needed to inspire interest in Aviation, Aerospace, Marine & Defence. The opportunities are endless.
Civilian and non-civilian VIPs are on hand to meet with participants and a variety of cool aircraft and equipment is available for all to explore. Hands-on displays and fun activities are provided by industry, agency and education partners for a tactile learning experience.
The event is open to the public with no registration required to attend. However registration is required for eligible females to fly. Stay tuned to this page for more information and event updates.
Due to the overwhelming demand for the free flights, this year we’ll be releasing the available seats in stages – every two weeks from end of December until the March event.  A generous reserve of seats will be held for release on site each day of the event and raffled off hourly.  Participants may enter the raffle as many times as they like over the two-day event, but only once per hour.
The best way to get a shot at advance registration is to like/follow us on Facebook: @SkysNoLimitGirlsFlyToo and Twitter: @GirlsFLy_Too. Hint: sometimes we post first on Facebook, other times on Twitter - like/follow both for the best chance to fly! Your likes/follows helps support us to grow, and keeps you in the loop as we post updates about the event and special VIP participants. You’ll also know right away when seats have been released and can share with your friends and family!
When flight registrations are released, or if openings due to cancellations occur, the registration button will appear on this page. This is also where you'll find event updates in the coming weeks.
