I Feel Like 2019 Is “The Year Of The Woman”  We are seeing all-female music groups form, Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton will be hosting this years CMA’s  in November  and as a proud father to a beautiful young women I say AMEN its well deserved, and this story is just so cool.

Delta Airlines is soaring to new heights in its efforts to close the aviation gender gap. In honor of International Girls in Aviation Day, the airline launched a flight from Salt Lake City to NASA in Houston that was made up exclusively of female crew members and passengers.

The fifth-annual WING flight (Women Inspiring our Next Generation) carried 120 girls aged 12-18 to Texas, and was arranged and orchestrated entirely by women, from the pilots and ramp agents to the gate agents, Delta said in a statement.

The initiative was first launched in 2015 as a means of exposing young girls to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) careers, as those industries are largely male-dominated.

This year, the group toured NASA’s Mission Control Center, Building 9, Johnson Space Center and Space Center Houston, and also ate lunch with NASA astronaut and aerospace engineer Jeanette Epps.
