Guidance Aviation has committed a total of $18,000 in cash donations to be evenly distributed over the next three years, 2015 – 2017, to support the Whirly-Girls’ plans to revamp its current website and enhance its reach to future female helicopter pilots.
“The opportunity to work with Guidance Aviation and its team of talented professionals is a welcome opportunity for the Whirly-Girls. Guidance Aviation has recognized that our organization needs to extend its reach and will work as a guiding hand, ensuring that our membership and mission are getting the best exposure possible. The Guidance Aviation team is assisting us with the development of a new website and marketing strategies to help bolster recruitment and member retainment,” states Joni Schultz, VP of Operations, Whirly-Girls.
“Over the past 16 years, I have watched drastic fluctuations in female student pilot and flight instructor populations. These fluctuations indicate the industry needs support in improving these populations and striking a healthier balance. I am hopeful that this partnership is the next step to building a strong foundation for a well established development track for female helicopter pilots. Whirly-Girls has always provided valuable guidance, resources, and mentorship to their constituents,” remarks John Stonecipher, President/CEO, Guidance Aviation.
