We Champion Women In Aviation
According to the Women in Aviation: A Workforce Report by the University of Nebraska at Omaha Aviation Institute, only 1.5% of airline captains, 5.1% of all pilots, 2.4% of aerospace mechanics, and 3% of CEOs, COOs, and other key aviation leadership positions are women.
Attracting, retaining, and advancing women in aviation are critical to the U.S. aviation industry’s safety, sustainability, profitability, and ability to innovate. For these reasons, the Remington Viney Legacy is pursuing its mission.
The Remington Viney Legacy
“Remington was passionate about any adventure that life had to offer,” says her mother, Tia Scanlon. “We always say she always wanted the fastest, highest, and best ride. We want her memory to live on to inspire other young women to achieve their dreams. She was just an incredible and special person. The Remington Viney Legacy organization carries her legacy forward and will make a difference in other young lives. That really helps us in our grief, too,” Tia explains.
The Remington Viney Legacy fund also supports educational and charitable human service projects in Wisconsin, or with regional or national merit.
“Remington was passionate about many things in her life, including being a vegan, finding ways to advocate for animals, improving our planet’s environment, and locally-owned businesses, especially those supporting women,” says Tia. “And, of course, one of her greatest passions was aviation.”
As the fund grows, and because of Remington’s extensive involvement and affiliation with so many local flight programs and associations, it will award future grants to organizations with a preference for those supporting women who have an interest in or are pursuing a career in aviation.
