• 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm Education day presentation, “Navigating Social Media as a Helicopter Industry Professional.” Elan Head, Contributing Editor for Vertical Magazine and Senior Editor for The Air Current, will talk about how what we post on social media impacts not only how others in the industry see us, but also how the public perceives the helicopter industry. She will discuss how algorithmic (and actual!) bias means that female pilots often have a different experience on social media than their male colleagues.

• 3:00 – 5:00 pm – Hovering. Come share your news and hear from other Whirly-Girls and friends at our Annual Hovering.

Tuesday – Thursday, March 7 – 9: Gather at the Whirly-Girls’ booth in the expo hall to purchase great merchandise, meet other members and friends, renew your membership, or sign up to join. You can also volunteer! Contact operations@whirlygirls.org for more details.
