A Franklin County nonprofit is drawing young women into aviation careers


BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) – Only two of the 35 hangars at the Franklin County State Airport in Swanton have bright pink doors. One belongs to Beth White, an educator, breast cancer survivor and pilot. The other is home to Habitat for Aviation, the nonprofit that White launched in 2022 to train the next generation of airplane mechanics and pilots, with a focus on getting young women into the male-dominated field.

Darren Perron spoke with Seven Days’ Alison Novak, who wrote about White and the organization in this week’s issue.
