Women in Aviation

At the Brampton Flight Centre, we feel that it is vital to support women within the aviation industry.  With a mere 6% of all private pilots in Canada being women and only 4.5% of all Airline Transport Pilot Licence holders in Canada being women, it is important that we introduce as many women as possible to the industry and support them in their career paths.  With groups such as the Ninety-Nines and Women in Aviation offering both financial and moral support to women, we hope to see an increase in the number of women who are pursuing a career in aviation, both across Canada and around the world.

Every year at the Brampton Flight Centre’s annual awards night, the Wings Banquet, we honor the top Female Private Pilot from within our Club with the Bonnie Rampulla Award.  The candidate is chosen based on both their written exam and flight test marks.
