Save the Date: Girls Take Flight 2024 September 21

Jan 19, 2024

September 21, 2024
NEW location: Billy Bishop Airport, Toronto

After nine successful years introducing many girls and their families to aviation and aerospace at the Oshawa Executive Airport. In 2023, more than 1600 people attended, including members of the community, politicians, media, pilots, ground volunteers, speakers and people staffing the exhibitor booths. Over the course of nine years, more than 1200 women and girls have received a free discovery flight in a small airplane, thanks to the pilots who donated their aircraft and fuel.

For 2024, we are making a significant and exciting change. While the majority of the discovery flights will take place on April 27 at the Oshawa Airport, Girls Take Flight as we have come to know it ‑ including the expo, speaker program, static aircraft display and a number of discovery flights ‑ will now take place at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport on Saturday, September 21.

While the event has always been a great success, we wanted to bring Girls Take Flight to new heights in 2024 and secure a corporate partner that would be able to support the event for years to come. With Toronto City Airport presenting Girls Take Flight, within walking distance for many and accessible by public and regional transit for much of the Greater Toronto Area, we will be able to connect with even more young women and girls who may be considering a future career in aviation.​
