Breaking Barriers At The Aerospace Maintenance Competition

Three all-female teams made history at this year's Aerospace Maintenance Competition at MRO Americas in Orlando, Florida.

At the 2018 Aerospace Maintenance Competition, Elevate Aviation, Pratt & Whitney's WiseWomen and United's Chix Fix broke ground as the competition's first trio of all-female teams. The teams talked to Aviation Week on the competition floor about what the journey was like for them this year.

Editor's note: The voiceover at 0:21 states that this was the first year the competition had all-female teams competing. The first all-female team was actually from South Seattle Community College in 2014.
