NHCFAE supports Girls in Aviation Day in Puerto Rico
On Saturday 10/29 members of our National Hispanic Coalition in San Juan, Puerto Rico took part in “Girls in Aviation Day” held at the Puerto Rico FBO in Isla Grande. Aviation professionals along with Federal Aviation Administration colleagues participated and held discussions about their aviation careers. Over 300 Students from 10-17 years old attended and heard directly from pilots, air traffic controllers, technicians and engineers in the aviation Industry and learn about drones, airports and many other careers in the aviation field. It was a wonderful event and members of our NHCFAE included Tamara Sabalier, John Melecio, Michelle Doboa, and Marluan Diaz. FAA colleagues supporting as well were Carlos Perez, Adriana Sostre, Teresa Gotay, Sonia Quinones and Patria Navedo. We thank each and every one of them for taking part on such an impactful event and our NHCFAE remains committed in supporting STEM/AVSED events in Puerto Rico to inspire the next generation of FAA professionals in the island.
