Fly Like a Girl

Like many industries, aviation is one that tends to be dominated by men. That’s why the new documentary “Fly Like a Girl” was created, to showcase some amazing female aviators and inspire others to pursue their passions even when the odds are against them.

“If you ask someone to name as many female aviators as they can think of, most would only be able to say Amelia Earhart. There are so many women beyond Amelia, both modern and historical, that have played an important role in the aviation and STEM world. Fly Like a Girl brings some of these women’s stories to light,” said director Katie McEntire Wiatt.

In a prepared release, the producers tell us “Fly Like A Girl is more than just a film. It’s a movement of young girls and women relentlessly pursuing their passion for aviation, a field currently dominated by men. Hear first-hand stories from girls and women who dared to aim higher. From a lego-loving young girl who includes female pilots in her toy airplanes, to a courageous woman who helped lead shuttle missions to space, Fly Like A Girl shows us that women are in charge of their own destiny.”

The documentary contains interviews with Senator Tammy Duckworth, NASA astronaut Nicole Scott, STEAM activist Taylor Richardson, American aviator, aspiring astronaut, and American advocate for STEAM education Abigail Harrison, and U.S. national aerobatic champion Patty Wagstaff. It serves as an inspiration to all interested in aviation and breaking the barriers holding them back.

Fly Like a Girl is now streaming on various services. Check out the trailer below!
