You may have noticed several helicopters over Abbotsford earlier today and it was all part of the two-day Girls Fly Too! event!

Girls Fly Too!

The initiative for this free event is to inspire and generate interest among girls and women of all ages to consider a career in the aviation and aerospace industry.  It’s held every year to mark International Women’s Day and to honour Women of Aviation Worldwide Week.

You can still head down to the Abbotsford International Airport to take part in the event until 5:30 pm today (Sunday, March 8th, 2015).

Alex Butler from The Abbotsford News was there and you can read more about it here.
