Team HORST was well represented at last weekend’s Women Take Flight event at the New England Air Museum.
The annual event to celebrate women in the aviation and aerospace industry was fantastic. We were joined by so many great companies and organizations. Our team led an activity where several hundreds children (mostly girls) built a little biplane from popsicle sticks. This was a cool idea and proved to be very popular. The museum hosted more than 600 visitors in total!
You couldn’t miss our booth because we were right at the entrance to the military hangar, and in the shadow of the massive Sikorsky CH-54B “Skycrane.”
This was an excellent event. If you are local to the New England area, keep your eyes open for other special events at the New England Air Museum as they have an amazing collection of aircraft and memorabilia. The history of aviation is a storied one, and the Connecticut River Valley is central to that story. The museum does an awesome job of promoting the important history of aviation to our nation and our community.
