Hello! My name is Sofía Evelyn Valdivia Pérez! And I’m 19 years old! I open this section, just out of curiosity! and to know if in this community there are women who fly IFS! … And I would like to know! Thank you all! they are a great community!
Um… yes there are.
Quite a few actually @Jennifer23 @ sundown (save her the tag)
And a few others. I would reach out to them they are all friendly and kind!
Enjoy the community!
The founder is Laura Laban who is female. I work with a very nice women in my VA. Her name is @Shafran and she is actually a FA in real life. I know quite a few others and I’m sure out of this 44.8K+ user community there are lots of females.
Thank you all very much! … I hope to fly with you sometime! and with the women of this community!
I’ve always wanted to know this! I mean I’m sure there are women but this seems like a very “male-dominated” community.
The truth is that there are women who like aviation! That’s why I asked myself the question, and well I turned it into a topic here hehehe
I agree! Unfortunately my comment was viewed as “offensive” and someone flagged it. I don’t understand why. I was just curious.
Well, I haven’t marked anything! …
Oh no, I know it wasn’t you lol
I don’t really see this as “male dominated” or see the whole industry male-dominant or unfair to women.
But people have different perspectives 🤷 Just putting out mine.
True, but I don’t see how what I said was offensive
Seeing something as offensive stems from different perspectives/opinions. You’re not in the wrong, at least not from my point of view.
I’m with you @nativetoalaska
I believe the post was restored. It definitely didn’t seem offensive to me.
@SofiaValdivia the aviation industry is male dominated. Because of that, the IFC is predominantly male. I’d love to see much more diversity in the Aviation sector. I’d also love that same diversity here on the IFC. Hopefully it will come some day.
I know! I still think the same! ☺️
Much agreed! That’s exactly what I was trying to say earlier but some others found it offensive. Glad my comment got restored. =)
Yes there are, for example one of my favourite VA staff members @Shafran! It’s great that there are some women here and I hope IF and the IFC become more diverse in general.
