Calendars sold by other supporters (eg pilots with their own planes who are keen to help promote women in aviation) will be deposited in C-FLUG’s bank account for C-FLUG’s contingency fund.


Sunday April 13th – St Andrews/Winnipeg Air Traffic Control Tower Tour

The C-FLUG team of Women Pilots is planning a tour of the St Andrews Tour at 17:00 (5:00 pm). Women interested in learning about flying, pilots and pilots in training are invited. (no purses and no cameras in the Tower). RSVP if you’re planning on attending as we may have to create two shifts due to limited space. You’ll see how the Air Traffic Controllers manage aircraft in the air and on the ground, you’ll hear communications between Pilots and Controllers, and you’ll have a chance to talk to Controllers about training, job opportunities, and salaries. Pre-register with jill.oakes@umanitoba.ca.


May 24th Spring Poker Derby 

All pilots welcome to join this fund raiser sponsored by the Manitoba Chapter of the 99s. Pilots purchase “poker cards” and are dealt their cards by flying to as many of the participating Manitoba airports as they like. Tons of door prizes and loads of fun for men and women – fill your plane with passengers too! Poster identifying participating airports will be posted shortly.
