CEDAR CITY — The Southern Utah University T-Birds Chapter of Women in Aviation International will be hosting a free movie night as part of a fundraiser at the SUU aviation hangar Saturday at 6 p.m.

Everyone is welcome to come to the hangar to watch the PG-rated “Top Gun,” which a news release from SUU called “a classic American film featuring Tom Cruise, fighter jets, lots of action and even some romance.” 

Women in Aviation International has over 13,000 members around the world who love aviation. Members of the nonprofit have a variety of backgrounds, including astronauts, pilots, maintenance technicians, air traffic controllers, business owners, educators, students, journalists, flight attendants, air-show performers, airport managers and more. 

The nonprofit is committed to advancing the dreams and goals of its members. Last year, WAI awarded more than 156 scholarships to men and women pursuing goals in aerospace, aviation maintenance, flight dispatch and aviation. The scholarships totaled more than $875,000.

Event officials suggested that interested attendees bring lawn chairs, blankets and money for concessions. The event itself is free but donations are welcome. Movie night will be weather dependent. Updates for the event can be found at Fly SUU Aviation on Facebook.
