Botswana women in aviation will next month host Women in Aviation High Tea charity event meant to afford all women and men across the aviation sector a networking environment.
Addressing delegates during Aviation Pitso in Maun recently, Lt Kgomotso Phatsimo of Botswana Defence Force (BDF) air arm said the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) had documented that there would be a shortage of aviation professionals in the near future across the entire international aviation community.
She, however, noted that the ICAO had launched the next generation of aviation professionals initiative to ensure that enough qualified and capable aviation professionals were available to operate, manage and maintain the future of the air transport industry.
Lt Phatsimo said a group of passion and dedicated female aviators across the entire country had grouped themselves to form the non-profitable Women in Aviation Botswana which will empower, encourage, motivate and attract the advancement of women and girls in different aviation fields.
She also noted that the organisation would be associated to its mother body Women in Aviation International.
Moreover, Lt Phatsimo added that the first female pilot in Botswana, Ms Sakhile Reileng would be the guest speaker.
