Queen of the Skies? 13 beautiful Filipinas vie for the Miss Aviation Philippines 2015 crown

The search for the most captivating woman in the Philippine aviation industry is well underway, as 13 young women compete for the prestigious title of Miss Aviation Philippines 2015.

The title was last conferred in the 1950’s and the 1970’s, with luminaries such as actress Lotis Key and Jojie Felix Velarde, wearing the crown.

This year, the title bears more meaning as the candidates were chosen from different aviation and tourism sectors. More than the prestige of the title, Miss Aviation Philippines carries with it profound advocacies: to empower and give a voice to women in the aviation industry; to inspire the youth to pursue a career in aviation; and become an ambassador of goodwill in bringing the industry together towards safer, more efficient and service-oriented practices.

“We are very proud to present 13 young women who are equally beautiful, intelligent and knowledgeable in their field of work. From avionics technicians to flight cabin crew, to flight dispatchers, aeronautical engineers, and aviation students, these ladies will surely be future leaders in the industry, and young people can look to them for inspiration,” said pageant director Morena Carla Cabrera Quimpo.
Supporting this advocacy is the Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta (PIHABF), one of Asia’s longest-running sports aviation events, that gathers aviators from the local and international scene.

“We are happy to share the same vision with Miss Aviation Philippines 2015. It is no secret that the improvement of the aviation industry also brings about progress in many other sectors, especially tourism and the local economy, and we hope to deepen this awareness through the pageant,” shared event director of the Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta (PIHABF), Capt. Joy Roa.

This year’s finalists for Miss Aviation Philippines 2015 are Blessilda Joy Lazaleta, Cleo Margaret Brown, Leihcel Galvez, Christabelle Angeles, Lyra Velchez, Mica Angela Angeles, Kathlyn Almeda, Lizl Luoise Camille Resoles, Jamil Joy Tabayoyong, Dayna Lyn Dela Vega, Phieliz Djyn Mari, Elaine Elago and Angelic Magat.
