NEW YORK (OCN) — Salute to Women continues with Meet the Pilots Day! After a successful Meet the Pilots Day last spring the Intrepid could not resist bringing in more amazing, and this time, female aviators.
The Intrepid is thrilled to welcome the following aviators:

Leslie Watkins: Commercial A320 pilot and JetBlue Airways flight instructor
Admiral Wendi Carpenter: US Navy (retired) and President of SUNY Maritime

Meet the Pilots Day (on Saturday, March 24, 2012) will begin with an 11:00am panel discussion in the Lutnick Theater, followed by a meet and greet.
The panel will be moderated by Mike Barger, a former Top Gun instructor for the US Navy and is included with Museum admission.
