The Milieux Project

The Milieux Project, Inc

milˈyo͞o, milˈyə(r)/plural noun: milieux; a person’s social environment (s).

We are a 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to bringing aviation to children who would not otherwise experience it.

What We Do


We strongly believe all children, but especially girls, benefit from learning about and experiencing aviation related opportunities. The complexities of flight, flight operations, maintenance and aeronautical engineering provide challenges and independent problem solving skills that are beneficial for success in all phases of life.


We connect girls to aviation career fields of their interest through our wide network of commercial airline, aerospace industry and military professionals. If we can’t provide a client an answer that fits her needs, we have the resources that will help her reach her goals.


Combining over 100 years of experience, we can help professional organizations increase their diversity, energize their portfolios and move to a space women WANT to work in.

Our Mission

Our mission is to advocate to increase these opportunities

for girls and others who would not have access to them otherwise.

About Us

Carrie and Jenn are experienced combat rescue pilots and experts in aviation. Recognized for their courage and tenacity, they realized it was time they share their love of flight (and the skills that come from it) with the next generation of pilots. Join them us as they share their love of aviation, their leadership and their stories to encourage more girls to fly.

“And while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space

Put out my hand

And touched the face of God.”

  • Scholarships
  • Varying exposure activities from limited activities to full immersion
  • Continuous mentorship

The aviation industry need for pilots is quickly outpacing the supply. There is no better time than now to explore a career in flying, operations, maintenance or design.

Our world calls for a new way of thinking about diversifying the aviation career field – we won’t do it alone. Through networking and community, Milieux Project, Inc is changing the aviation industry.

“Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much.”
