WOMEN OF AVIATION AT IT AGAIN - Worldwide Week


Message from Claire - WOAW Activity Organizer Support
www.womenofaviationweek.org

Setting Guinness World Records to Raise Awareness & Promote Your WOAW Activity
HELP BUILD AN HISTORICAL NUMBER OF PINK PAPER PLANES ACROSS THE GLOBE - MARCH 8, 2016, 12:00-12:15, LOCAL TIME
Nothing is quite as simple and inexpensive as building a Pink Paper Plane. Yet, nothing is quite as symbolic and powerful as building a Pink Paper Plane. It is an implicit acceptance by the builder, male or female, that women do indeed belong in aviation.

Join ‘The Aerospace World’ Team of Experts as we bring you the latest news from the venue


On March 8, 2016 (106th anniversary of the world's first female pilot license & International Women's Day), let's build an historical number of Pink Paper Planes from 12:00 to 12:15 (local time) in as many time zones as possible across the globe to highlight the lack of advancement of women in the air and space and raise awareness of opportunities available today.

ETHIOPIAN AIRLINES MADE HISTORY

Ethiopian made history last Wednesday (18th November, 2015) by sending an all-female crew on a flight from Addis Ababa to Bangkok, Thailand. 

Ethiopian Airlines CEO, Tewolde GebreMariam, spoke on the historic event saying "this is an opportunity to inspire young African female students to believe in their dreams and embark to fill the skill gap for Aviation professionals".

The flight was the first in the 70-year history of the airline in which the whole crew was female, not just the cockpit and cabin crew, it included maintenance crew members and air traffic controllers.

50 MINUTES WITH THE AIRBUS A380 - AMAZING MACHINE

The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by the European aircraft company Airbus. It is the world's largest passenger airliner, and the airports at which it operates have upgraded facilities to accommodate it. It was initially named Airbus A3XX and designed to challenge Boeing's monopoly in the large-aircraft market. The A380 made its first flight on 27 April 2005 and entered commercial service in October 2007 with Singapore Airlines.

The A380's upper deck extends along the entire length of the fuselage, with a width equivalent to a wide-body aircraft. This gives the A380-800's cabin 550 square metres (5,920 sq ft) of usable floor space,[4] 40% more than the next largest airliner, the Boeing 747-8,[5] and provides seating for 525 people in a typical three-class configuration or up to 853 people in an all-economy class configuration. The A380-800 has a design range of 8,500 nautical miles (15,700 km), sufficient to fly nonstop from Dallas, USA to Sydney, Australia, and a cruising speed of Mach 0.85 (about 900 km/h, 560 mph or 490 kn at cruising altitude).

As of October 2015, Airbus had received 317 firm orders and delivered 173 aircraft; Emirates is the biggest A380 customer with 140 on order and 67 delivered

AIR CRASH INVESTIGATION AIRBUS A380 TITANIC IN THE SKY 2014

On 4 November 2010, Qantas Flight 32, en route to Sydney's Kingsford Smith Airport, suffered an uncontained engine failure in its No.2 engine shortly after take-off. The crew managed to overcome a number of resulting failures and make an emergency landing back at Singapore. There were 469 passengers and crew on board. There were no injuries to the passengers, crew or people on the ground; debris from the aircraft fell onto the Indonesian island of Batam.
