Girls just wanna have flights

Girls just wanna have flights

Can't argue with that

Girls just wanna have FLIGHTS!  CALENDAR 2016

Why are there not more female pilots in hang gliding and paragliding?  Are these sports exclusive to men?  Haven't women demonstrated over time that we can excel in any sport?

"Girls just wanna have FLIGHTS" is a project to promote free flight.  It will be a calendar of female pilots only (hang gliding and paragliding).  Our intention is to inspire more women to fly and show that the sport is not only for men.

Despite being called "the weaker sex" us girls can also fulfill our dreams of flight, be good pilots and enjoy our sport.  We want to create a virtual community of female pilots, because in a sport full of men, we know that as girls we can better relate and communicate our experiences.

We will conduct a photography contest, which will be shared with the free flight community through social network, blogs, forums, our sponsors, etc.  The best photographs will appear on the calendar, which will be sold internationally with part of the profits generated will be donated to Cloudbase Foundation.

It is important to emphasize that we are not creating a calendar where women are objectified as mere decoration for a glider.  We do however want pictures of women showing their femininity, curves and beautiful smiles, as well as their strength, power, independence, and ability to fly just as well as any male pilot.
