Women pilots from all areas of Australia will fly their aircraft around Australia and pass a commemorative baton from each flight crew to the next. The relay aims to assist in raising awareness of women in aviation and also raising funds. This year the decision was made by the National AWPA Committee to donate the funds to the Cancer Council.Today was the third day of the relay and Shelly and Catherine flew the baton from Moruya to the Nowra girls. An afternoon tea was held at the base amidst much excitement. It was great to see a group of female school students there and also to meet the Navy girls, they are an inspiration and a great model for any women interested in aviation. Well done to all involved.
