Event Date: 
Wednesday, May 10, 2017 - 7:00pm

The women of SCFC have formed a new program aimed at inspiring and supporting women pilots. Fly Like a Girl connects current and aspiring women pilots in an informal bi-monthly forum.

San Carlos Flight Center invites all women pilots, controllers, mechanics, and technicians to join us at our next Fly Like a Girl meeting on Wednesday, May 10th.  This month’s topic continues our investigation into women in the aviation industry with a real time aviatrix guest speaker, Betty Uhrig!


  • Q&A with the Mechanic - SCFC Mx
  • Historic Aviatrix - Grace Zeller
  • Real Time Aviatrix - Betty Uhrig

Join SCFC May 10th as we welcome Betty Uhrig to share the lessons from her lifetime of aviation with us!  Uhrig started as an avionics technician, and after going to the Coast Guard Academy and working as an engineer on a ship, she finally got to go to flight school.  She has about 8000 hours in the C130 and ended her Coast Guard career flying the Commandant of the Coast Guard (CG had a G-III at the time).  Uhrig then went on to be hired by Chevron corp, where she flew their top executives to over a 100 countries.  During her time there she worked her way up to Chief Pilot, then later as the General Manager where she oversaw 120 aircraft worldwide (helicopters and fixed wing).

Betty Uhrig was the first female avionics tech in the Coast Guard, the first woman on the ship she was on, the first female pilot everywhere she was stationed, the first in the CG to fly with an all woman crew, and the first female pilot ever hired by Chevron!  This is also the first time she’ll be sharing her story with FLAG and you won’t want to miss it!

Food and beverages will be provided to all women aviators.
